    I bought it in the U.K. Its quite abit softer than a regular eraser, and you can rub out pencil marks..and it works!!! But I also use it to rub out the little bits of thread after ripppppppppppppping out seams sometimes :D

    HMMM, I wonder if one of those art erasers -- kinda like putty that you "stretch away" the erasures and it's clean again. Sorry that's the best I can do with the description. :oops: :lol:

    Aggi, I find that I don't have all that many if I tear it out slowly. I haven't used the same brand that you are using though. I use the stuff that you buy at art supply stores for architects/interior designers..called velumn paper.

    I use cheap typing paper for my piecing and when I'm ready to tear it off, I try to give it a fold next to the stiches. Seems to work pretty good. Not too many little pieces get stuck.

    With your suggestions I found I tear the paper slowly, then using my blue with white polka dot little tweezers from Avon, I take out the little stubborn pieces. After that I used clear packing tape, enough to wrap around my index and middle finger and pat with the sticky side to remove all the pieces.. Works like a charm and its not that time consuming!! Trevor thinks I'm NUTS!! but hey thats normal for me!!

    Thanks again for all your suggestions and advice!! I don't mind removing the pesky tracing bits now!!.. Now I just need to order another one of the fabulous tweezers from Avon to put back in my make up bag!! LOL
