My Grandson Liam is 9 years old and has been spending his weekdays with me due to schools being closed and the students doing virtual classes.
He emerged from the office and asked if we had a pencil sharpener so I took him down to our utility room where we have ours… I asked him if he had one like it in his classroom at school. He said no, so I asked if he knew how to use it…Yes Grandma, I saw one on a YouTube about the Olden Days!
I guess that says something. However, that sharpener is one of my often used quilting tools not only for pencils but I also sharpen school chalk (white) for when I need to mark quilts for longarming.
White chalk is another great tool as it is simple to remove by using my compressor when the marks are no longer used. It leaves no residue.
