The Hera Marker is my new favorite toy.
Slide the Hera firmly on the fabric.
The line is so fine theres no need to worry. It wont leave a permanent mark.

The Hera Marker is my new favorite toy.

I've tried a lot of different marking devices, and I like a lot of them, but now that I've tried this hera marker -- I'm sold.  It's a thin little piece of plastic that simply, but effectively, leaves a crease on the fabric. No ink, chalk, powder, or grease. So there's no permanent mark.

I'm not sure if it will work for every marking task. I tried to mark darts, tracing the lines on the pattern and hoping that the crease would show on both layers of fabric. I could see the mark on the top layer and the pattern paper stays in tact, but I wasn't able to read the line on the under layer. It seems to work best on one thickness. But that's fine for quilting. It's genious. I love it!

Check out the notions department of your favorite fabric store or quilt shop.

So far, stickers are my favorite because at least they are easy to see and remove. Sometimes I cut up old address label stickers that I get in the mail to use for that purpose (because I am cheap/crazy).
