    If you want to sharpen your soapstone:

    Round style stone can be sharpened by a childs pencil sharpener you get at Walmart for about a dollar.

    Flat style stone can be sharpened on a bench grinder, hand grinder (neither recommended around fabric), a simple piece of sandpaper or just rubbing it on the driveway/carport.

    Along the same lines as a grease pencil....

    Try a lumber crayon from lowes or hd.
    I just tested one out cause I am working on an UQ tonight and it seemed to work fine. I am only marking on the inside so no worries about seeing it on the finished product.
