    I use to fill in embroidery from my embroidery machine

  • Living on a farm, we can’t get enough sharpie markers around here…we use them to write prices of products down, to sign the bottom of our baskets when we sell at market, and to “tag” just about everything around. They are versatile and permanent which is what we need. My hubby stole mine, and I’m constantly buying new ones because we actually run out of ink!!!

    My students love them and I have to keep a close eye on who has borrowed one, or I would never get it back! :-)
