SAVE on Tsukineko Inks and Fabrico Markers -- SETS are ON SALE NOW!
Tsukineko Inks
Due to its blendability, washability and versatility, this quick-drying craft ink has become a favorite among fabric artists.  All-Purpose Ink is fun for artists of all ages. Use it on wood, paper, leather and other porous surfaces too.

All-Purpose Ink must be heat set on fabric for best permanence. Heat set between color applications to prevent bleeding. Or layer colors to achieve a blended "watercolor" effect. 
Click here to see our selection of Tsukineko Inks...

Fabrico Markers

Fabrico Markers can be used on a variety of surfaces such as fabric, paper, wood, leather, unglazed ceramic, paper mache and shrink plastic. Available in 36 colors (white not available), the markers feature both a brush and bullet tip, specifically designed for smooth ink flow. Perfect for adding details, lettering and coloring in. We recommend heat-setting for best permanence. Important! Store horizontally to keep both tips well-inked.

BACKORDERS:  SewThankful can not predict the demand level for any/all inventory items at all times -- even if we could, sometimes our suppliers run out of inventory and we must wait for re-supply from them. That means backorder situations are a possibility. Should a backorder situation arise on a "coupon code item" Sew Thankful will honor the savings as long as the order is placed during the coupon period and the item is still available within a reasonable timeframe and at a reasonable price from our supplier(s). Should a backorder situation arise on your order, SewThankful will contact you as soon as possible by email to let you know your options. We do not charge your credit card for backordered items until the day they ship.  HOWEVER, if you choose to pay via Paypal and there is a backorder, the payment is immediate and will stay in place as we can not "suspend" Paypal payments while we wait for the backorder to arrive.

Errors & omissions: SewThankful reserves the right to correct any errors, typos, omissions or accidental misprints related to products, dates, pricing, special offers and/or any information contained herein.
