    Marking and Pressing Tools
    Temporary Markers

    Clover White Marking Pen

    Most of the marking pens/pencils do not show up well on dark fabric.  Well this pen has been designed especially to be used on dark fabrics. As the ink dries on the fabric, white markings will become visible--it takes a few seconds.  The marks disappear by ironing or spraying with water. 
    Always test the marker on a scrap of the same fabric before using.  Marks may not show up clearly on coarse, textured fabric.  Be sure to cap tightly after using.

    Air Erasable Chacopen by Clover

    This is one of my favourite markers as it has a fine tip for accurate marking but it also has an eraser at the other end that can remove lines if you happen to get them in the wrong place. Otherwise, markings will disappear within a couple of days.

    NG-101.....$7.98

    Water Erasable Chacopen by Clover

    This is the perfect marker for times when you want the lines to stay on for a period of time.  Great for marking quilting lines with stencils, tracing around templates, lines for heirloom sewing.  The light blue ink is visible on most fabrics.  To remove the lines, either use the eraser end or spritz with water. 

    NG-102.....$7.98

    Eraser Pen
    by Clover

    Simply trace the eraser pen over the lines that you want to remove--it is like magic. Those  lines that are not quite in the right place will disappear with this eraser pen.   Sometimes the eraser on the end of the Chacopen is expired before the ink runs out so this pen fills in.

     Pastel Chalk Marking Pencils

    These chalk pencils are wonderful as they are made of a mixture of chalk and clay.  The chalk will generally rub off while you are quilting/stitching, however the clay will remain on your fabric for the duration of the stitching.  When finished the remaining chalk and clay can be brushed off with a terry-cloth washcloth, erased with a fabric eraser or washed in cool water.  They contain no chemicals and are of archival quality.  It is always a good idea to test any pencil before using it on your project.  Each pencil comes with a clear lid to protect the point.

    The extender, is useful when the pencil becomes short and harder to use.

    NG-107........white.........$2.98 each
    NG-108......light gray....$2.98 each

    Graphite Pencil

    This pencil is pure graphite and contains no wax.  It is the wax that normally binds marks to your quilt top.  A majority will rub off while you are stitching, however, a light line should remain on your top for the duration of your stitching.  Since there is no wax, this pencil creates a dark line easily--the graphite pencil is not for use with a heavy hand--only mark as light as you need to see.  Marks can be erased with a fabric eraser or washed in cool water.  These graphite pencils contain no chemicals and are of archival quality.
