If you need fabric marks to last longer than the disappearing ink markers give, this little chalk set is serious nifty (Dritz). Costs about $15.00, but it’s worth it.

  1. That does look nifty – do you think it would work for embroidery, or is it best suited for quilting? Does it eventually wash out?

  2. I’m sure it would work fine for embroidery. Going very light is best (I got heavy handed on the quilt, so I’m buffing out the heavy chalk with a microfiber cloth before stitching), and the chalk has always washed out for me. It’s always best to test that out first, on a bit of the fabric you’ll be using.
