This is a Hera marker for marking quilting lines. This handy little tool will become your best friend. It is superb for marking straight lines on your quilt. It leaves no lead, or residue - it marks by making a sharp CREASE onto your quilt. It looks a bit like a butter knife and you run it along the edge of a acrylic ruler (much like a rotary cutter). Instead of a pencil mark, or a cut (Horrors!) it leaves a crease which is easy to see and will naturally fall out of the quilt in a day or so. It was originally used as a Japanese tailoring tool, but the use for quilting is fabulous.
Although I have not used my Hera Marker yet; I am happy to say that the seller was so speedy on shipping my order to me! I will definitely order from MinickandSimpson again! Thank you!
