Mystery Solved!

The Spinster Sister found her magnets (used to hold her chart in position as she stitched) making marks on her linen as she stitched!  She calls this "magnet poop."

Turns out it wasn't the magnets making the marks at all.   (WHEW!)  It was the ink on the xerox of the chart rubbing off.  The Spinster Stitcher makes a copy of the pertinent part of a chart she's doing and clips the copy to her work with magnets.

You can use plastic sheet protectors from office supply stores to keep this from happening to you.

I haven't had that happen, but I mark off the chart with felt tip markers. Since they tend to go through the paper, I put a piece of clean, heavy paper underneath to protect the canvas.
