I donít particularly like marking fabric with regular pencil lead. BUT, I adore THIS pencil for drafting quilt blocks and quilting designs. (Truth be told, it makes balancing my checkbook tolerable, too.)
Not only does the lead always stay sharp, but it advances AUTOMATICALLY! No fooling! Somehow the pencil knows when you need more lead and just pushes it out.
With the SensMatic automatic pencil, thereís nothing to shake, push, click, or twist. Just enjoy a sharp pencil every single time you reach for it and every minute you're writing with it.
AND, you can refill it. Just twist off the top and throw another lead inside. This 5/pack comes with a canister of replacement leads and an extra eraser. Lead size is .7mm which is perfect for anything I need.
No quilter should be without three. Kids love them too!
