Everything you need to know about your new MadamSew Chalk Markers
MadamSew Chalk Marker Pens come in 4 different colors made with dosing wheel technology. This means there is a little wheel at the end of the pen that will guide the chalk smoothly over various types of fabric (not recommended for silk or nylon)
You can draw straight and curved lines very precisely, with or without a ruler.
The dosing wheel also allows the chalk to move in both directions
Our chalk markers are refillable; just screw off the tip of the pen to open the chalk compartment and refill.
The chalk marks fade as you sew over your fabric, so this marking option may be best if you are planning not to move your project too much around. As with any marking tool, always test the marker on a scrap piece of fabric first.
To remove the marks, just wipe or rub them off. A soft clean toothbrush works well for this. First, blow off any excess chalk powder, then gently brush over the marks. If brushing the marks doesn’t eliminate them, try dabbing the marks with a sponge dampened with water. If you iron over the marks they stay longer, but not to worry– they wash out easily because there is no wax in this product. If you are worried about marks showing on your fabric, or if you anticipate needing to iron a lot while you work, put your marks on the wrong side so it doesn’t matter if the iron hits it.
