    someone recently wrote in about pens they purchased at Houston Quilt Show and said they were available at Staples. Could you please tell me the name again?

    thanks

    They're called Frixion (spelled like that) and I think the brand is Pilot?

    yes! I just bought a couple (from my market, no less!) and tried it tonight. I took a black pen and squiggled it all over a piece of white scrap fabric. Then I took my iron and, voila, the marks were GONE! Gone, I tell you! It was amazing and I cannot Wait to use these in my real quilting.

    Pilot, Frixion.

    Is it true though that the ink lines will come back in cold air?

    I bought them in Houston and then more later at Staples. I have never had the ink come back under any conditions.

    No, not the same thing. Just the Frixion pen not highlighter. Sorry. :cry:
