Pens for marking quilts

A couple of our members have recently used these pens for marking quilting patterns on finished tops, and were pleased with the results.  The brand is Pilot FriXion Ball, and they have the words “remove by friction” on them. After making marks on fabric and sewing you just hold the steam iron about an inch away and shoot steam on them to make them disappear. Available in a range of colours, and cost about $5.50 each.

Pilot Pens Australia says they are available from Woolworths, Coles, Officeworks, Newsagent or through your corporate stationery supplier.  There is even one that supports breast cancer research.

The website includes a warning not to use the pens for signing cheques and other important documents ...
