Since my Quilt shop was out, I ended up finding them at Walgreens in the office supply section.  From the research I have done online they originally were not made for Quilters.

Also, forgot to mention.  The ink reappears in temps lower then 14*.  I tested some fabric, wrote a message, ironed it away and put in in the freezer.  I left it in over night and when I took it out the ink reappeared.  I reironed it and ink disappeared again.

At one point is was discussed that anything that disappears by ironing only goes into the nether regions and then can make a surprise reappearance at a later date. Hence I will be sticking to the washable markers. Sometimes it is the fabric that is the problem, not the marker. I made a scrap quilt  for grandson with red backing and border. After washing only one particular fabric, muslin type, picked up the red. The other good quality off white fabrics and blues all were as pristine as when I started. I use the washable markers on my cream colored aida for cross stitching without problems.

I competly agree Agnes. Since you told me abt them I have used them for every type of fabric i have had to mark on and they have don perfectly, no problem washing out, no bleeding when i iron and they are only $4.95 for 12 :) That is part is one of the best reasons to use them in my book, everything else we use to quilt is expensive. It is refreshing to have something actually be inexpensive!

Kari - we could start sending secret messages to each other!! How cool! (pun intended).

I use Shout Color Catchers when I wash my quilts for the first time (I use Crayola markers) to help "catch" any extra dye (ink). I have never had any problems.

I would use Shout Color Catchers if I could find them. They are nowhere to be found in my part of Canada. I've looked for years where other Shout products are on the shelf.

Robin--I buy mine at Back to School time. I only paid $3. I wasn't sure how mine were holding out so I I bought another package at that time, this time going for a different color mix.

Im not sure, these are new to me and were shown to me my my LQS owner.  I read the back which is the only reason I knew about the temp change reappearing the ink.

Kari - hopefully none of us will be using our quilts in 0 temps and having the markings reappear.  :o)

My husband already thinks my load has slipped a little for cutting up fabric so I can sew it back togeather, when he sees me writing on fabric and putting it in the freezer, he may walk around me in really big circles!!  That my project for tonight, write, press, freeze.

I also use the quilters pen but I think the erasible marker will work just as good.

Vivian, I never heard of freezing.  Are you freezing the fabric.  Sounds very interesting.  Tell me what does this do?
