    I love mine. There is also a liquid eraser pen that you can use to get rid of the marks. But I think maybe water would also do it.

    My sewing group has tried them all. Be careful, the pink leaves a mark that doesn't come out entirely. I'm talking about marking your quilt for "hand quilting." I've used the white and green for tracing around applique patterns.

    I haven't used the Sewline but use the Fons & Porter pencils. I use them often and really like them.

    A friend of mine bought the sewline one and I used hers and fell in love with it.
    I found that the sewline leads also fit the F&P pencils. Have of each w 2 different leads - love 'em!

    I love my Sewline pencils and eraser and would not be without them now that I've found them.

    I wish JoAnn's sold them, but they don't.

    One difference between the Fons and Porter and Sewline is that Sewline pencils are ceramic.

    Sharon Schamber uses Bohin. She also uses very cheap mechanical pencils as the markings erase very easily. I use the Sewline and the cheap pencils. Have not ordered the Bohin's and cannot find them at Joann's or any local LQS. Do like the Sewline.

    I just finished a quilt where I used the green Sewline.
    I washed the quilt, and the green did not come out.
    I don't know why, but it didn't. It is under the stitching.
    I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do.
