Drawing Pen Alert!

I have just learned from Kimberly Smith at the LNS (The NeedleWorks here in Austin) that Sharpie has now produced a set of the ultra fine point pens (that I like to use for drawing on needlepoint canvas) in COLORS!!. For many many years, black in either the Pilot or the Sharpie, has been my only option. The black pens feed out ink heavily in the beginning, so have to mellow out a bit, as I have to take great care not to make heavy, dark and ugly lines. I'm really excited to learn about these pens in multiple colors - Kim is a designer, herself, so I trust her judgment in this. Not all pens are "safe" that claim to be. I will be off to Target or Walmart to get some this weekend.


  1. Hi Judy,

    Let us know how it goes and if they work as well as the black ones! :-)

  2. These work great!!! I have tested them now - every color with everything wet I could think of, and the ink won't budge. I love it!!
