    I will be adding names to a family Quilt,
    What kind of pen should I use?
    I want something that will hold up over the years.
    Thank you

    Pigma pens work well.

    I read a blog where the author compared a few different pens and washed the fabric. Let me find the link.

    here's the link:

    since I already owned Copic Multiliners, that's what I use.

    I use pigma pens. They seem to hold up with multiple washings.

    Thanks for this..I've used all kinds of archival pens with big claims for stability and this link provided real answers!
