    Never heard of them myself. Good luck I am sure you will get some feedback on them. :)

    There are a bunch of us doing the Affairs of the Heart quilt here on the board and one of the helpful tools is the Sewline pencils.

    I bought two of them and have only used it once, but I like it so far. I bought mine at Hancock's because I had an order going with them, but saw them in a set at Fabric.com. I would like to have the set and carry case some day, but the single pencils I got are enough for now.

    Fabric.com has just a few items when you search for Sewline, Hancock's has a great selection and a great price for individual pencils. Fabric.com has free shipping over $40, you have to pay for shipping at Hancock's.

    I also use Bohin France. Got them when I took a class on "Less Than Traditional". They are wonderful.

    I love mine and have used it constantly since I received it over two years ago. Mine was the original and you had to buy all the different color refills. I find I use the white one and the pink one the most.

    I use the white and the green the most. I find I can make one or the other work on everything I mark onto.

    I have one - a Fons and Porter brand one that I got at Hancocks - Joann's also sells it - and I love love love it. I want to get another color for light fabrics. I have the white one right now.
    A friend of mine bought the sewline one and I used hers and fell in love with it.

    I used the Bohin one to mark for hand quilting and it worked great. Stayed longer than chalk but was pretty well gone by the time I was finished quilting each section. I washed the quilt when I finished and there are no marks to be seen.
