    I get so many of those preprinted address labels sent to me and now I use them when I need to label or number fabric pieces. They stick on the fabric nicely and never leave a mark. (Really useful when doing a Pam Bono design LOL)

    I like to carry them with me in case I have to fill out info on raffle tickets, door prizes etc, I use them to mark my patterns and quilt books too in case I borrow them out or take them when I teach classes.

    It's in the fons and porter book called 'the complete quilters guide', fabulous book I got from the library and then bought a used copy on Amazon for $8.00. If you want to send me a see, I will copy it and mail you the pattern

    I use the cheapie blank stickers that are about 500 in a pack from WalMart for about $3. I think they are meant for use as garage sale price stickers????? Anyway, I have them in several different colors, shapes and sizes and use them all the time for keeping pieces, blocks and rows organized as I go. Saves a lot of time being sure something is in the right place before sewing....and knowing me, it also saves a lot of time ripping stuff apart that was put together wrong!

    I use my address labels on all of my quilting tools so that when they are shared at a retreat or workshop they can also come back to me (by return address).
