Stuff My Stocking - Day 3 - Pigma Pens

Yesterday we heard from many of you and love that you love our Stuff My Stocking offers! This could become one of those favorite traditions that mark the holiday season. I spent a good part of my day on phone calls and emails from many happy customers, and the list just keeps growing! The rotary blade and aurifil thread offers are now history, and we are moving on to another great deal:

Day 3
Pigma Pen 6 Pack

This pack normally sells for $16.99, but today only you can add it to your stocking for $12.74 (25% off).

The pack contains a great assortment of primary colors plus black and brown, useful in so many ways in our quilting and crafting. The first thing that comes to my mind is using these for signatures and labels on fabric, since the ink is permanent when heat set. The embroiderers that I know love these fine tip pens for tracing line designs onto fabric, leaving a line that is visible but fine enough to be covered by stitches. I keep a pigma pen right beside my machine because I use it whenever I do bindings -- I mark my cutting lines when I am making the last seam to join the 2 ends of the binding strips. The little ink line makes an accurate marker because it isn't fuzzy or blobby or fat. I also have been using some pigma pens for a little artistic doodling called Zentangles. Scrapbookers and paper crafters make use of pigma pens in many ways, too, but since I won't let myself go near those aisles in the craft stores for fear of disappearing into the Bermuda Triangle of crafting, those uses will remain a mystery to me!

Again, to take advantage of this offer do one of these things:
