WHICH IS THE BEST PEN FOR THE JOB?
Hello, fellow stitchers!
Labelling is an important final step when finishing up a quilt. We don’t know where our work will end up 50 years from now and we know that quilts last a really long time if cared for properly. Do the future a favour and sew a label on it!
I simply use a fine tip permanent marker to write mine – but which one works the best?
Leslie, our notions specialist at the shop came up with a clever way to find out which one she likes best. She took each one she has and wrote on fabric with it. Then laundered as she usually washes her quilts. Now she has a great visual of what works the best!
Isn’t that smart? See her results below:
Sewline Stayer for the win! Now go grab your markers and see which works best for you 🙂 Happy making, quilters! If you like, you can shop the Sewline Stayer here.
