For the autographed pillow cases...can you use sharpies or will they bleed when laundered? Also does anyone know what time the shows are? We have a Palo reservation at 7 one night and I don't know if we'll need to move it so as to not miss the show. Thanks!!

The shows are at 6.15pm ( 2nd sitting) and 8.30pm ( 1st main sitting) and last an hour. 7pm Palo should be ok for the 8.30pm show, but dont rush Palo, enjoy it.

I would recommend that you tell your server that you want to go to the show when you meet them so that they will know that you wish for the meal to be quick and not bring you assortments of things you did not order to sample, which happens quite often. We have never gotten out of Palo in less than two hours.

Look at the sharpies. They used to all be permanent markers, but now the company makes other products. Make sure that you have the waterproof, permanent variety.

We have used both sharpies and the markers specifically designed for fabric -- the fabric type permanent markers laundered much better--- colors held up better and did not bleed -- Sharpies faded a bit over time with washing and bled a bit - not a huge deal - but if you have the option I would go with the fabric markers (try Michaels or one of the craft stores ) -- esp if the item is one to be laundered frequently

You could look at Micron brand Pigma Pens. They're for fabric, have all colors and have a finer tip. I'd recommend them, I sign all my quilts with them, and they wash well.
