    I went to a retreat this weekend with some friends. A few had just gone up to Paducah, KY and came back with some neat stuff. One of the things I LOVE is this new pen. A friend sold me one of her extras, they come in different colors, for $3.00.
    It marks very easily on fabric, like a roller ball pen, and then irons off like MAGIC!~
    No instructions came with mine, I don't know where she got it, except somewhere in that area. There is what a appears to be an eraser on the end, but the best way to remove is by iron.
    Thought I'd share.
    OH!~ written on it is: remove by friction

    I can read "Pilot", but what else does it say on the pen? Can these be purchased in Staples or are they unique to LQS?

    you can search this forum for information on this pen. its been out for over a year now and their is a lot of controversy regarding this pen.

    some say its ok to use and others say its not safe.

    i have see many blog posts about this pen where people made samples and the markings never went away.

    I'm sorry, I don't know. I wrote all I know. I will try to find out. It works great for me and I love it. I'm very behind on things, so was thrilled to find this.

    I got mine at Staples at the back to school sale and they were really cheap. I haven't had any trouble with them, so far. No dark colors, have to remember that. My pens are black anyway so I guess that doesn't matter to me.

    Also if you enter Frixion in the search block at the top of the message board you will get lots of threads to check out here.

    BEWARE!! The pen marks will disapear with heat, but if it gets cold (like up north), they will reappear! We did a test at a LQS. So DON't use it to mark your quilt for quilting.
