The Marking Tools We Use When Quilting

Tuesday Tidbits quilting video blog archives

    This week we’re talking marking tools. I know that we all have our favorites, and we’re sure that we might not mention the one that is your favorite. We’ve always been of the attitude “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Sometimes we try a new product and then go right back to what we’ve always used. I think it’s a comfort thing! We also have several tips for marking – and cleaning up those marks on your fabrics.
