It can be tough traveling, but sometimes the biggest challenge is returning home to the piles of mail and catching up on emails, not to mention reading blogs! I actually like to decompress with a cup of coffee and surround myself with the piles and savor it while sweet DH does the laundry.
This time, nestled in our stack of mail were copies of the latest Quilting Arts magazine. Inside is my first column reviewing products that are of interest to art quilters. The column is called “Out of the Toolbox” and I’ll be doing a total of six columns over the next year. In this issue, the review is on page 74. I reviewed Pentel’s Gel Roller for Fabric, which is my new best friend!
Synopsis of the article: Pentel’s Gel Roller for Fabric performed beautifully in every respect. It delivered a dark, smooth line with no smearing, no hiccups. Both the heat-set and non-heat set samples washed well with no signs of fading after going through the washer with regular laundry three times. Basically, it is everything you could want in a great fabric pen.
To celebrate my new column, I have TWO issues of this magazine to give away, so you have TWO chances to win. No hoops to jump through. Just leave a comment below. I’d especially love to hear any suggestions on products you would like to see reviewed. On Friday morning I’ll draw numbers to select the two winners.
