I know these erase with heat, but do the marks show back up when cold like the Frixon pens/markers?

You'd actually have to freeze your fabric, to have the lines reappear. Only in extreme cases could this happen, but yes then the lines would come back. Solution: handwash them out and DONE! Now they will NEVER come back again. :-)

Do the refills and pens dry up over a year? I have refills that did and was disappointed. I mibht try again.

The ink is actually a very special kind of gel. Your pens perform spectacularly for at least 3 months, then the special gel ink may start to dry out. ...but mostly, they will just continue to work splendidly! Still, we recommended only ordering refills when your pens are (near) empty. That way, you'll always have fresh pens.

What's the difference between the .7mm point and “with a writing width of 0.35mm” as it states in the description? Thanks.

The lines you draw are .35mm wide, yet the actual width of the tip of the pen is 0.7mm. Only really important if you're trying to put a dot down through a ruler hole, or distance marker.

Will the white pen show up on black fabric?

Yes, I used mine for the first time on a recent quilt, the white on black. It worked great! The one thing I wasn't prepared for is if you have a lot of marking to do, it uses quite a bit of ink. It took two of the refills to do a lap size quilt. I will be ordering more refills very soon.

Will the pen leave any slightly visible line? Like faint white on dark fabrics?

No mark left. I love them.

Can’t you just buy one

I don’t know, but once you use these pens one won’t last very long. They are wonderful! Besides quilting, I use them for garment sewing, marking darts and hems , so it’s nice to have more than one.

where is it made? what country? is it made in china?

Nowhere on the packaging or pens does it state “MADE IN CHINA”

Will ink dissapear with hot blow dryer?

Not as fast as an iron I tried it with a little stocking I was doing and it only took off the top part. I held it almost on top of the material and it still didn’t do much.

Will these pens work on wool?

Have not tried it on wool but it is a gel based pen and when I press on linen and Cotton, it disappears. If the wool is fairly smoothe , it should be fine. It did not mark well on quilt batting. I had to mark it a little harder. I love these pens. You do need to use them in about 6 months or they will dry out.

Can the refill alone be used to make marks, such as in a skinny punched out hole in a few layers of fabric?

I have not tried to use the refills alone. But the pens are nothing special. I had a hard time getting them to mark anything at all. Multiple scribbles to get even a little bit of a mark. I went back to a chalk marker and got rid of those Madam Sew ones. Not worth the wasted money
