I had troubles with not being able to see my chalk. In my sewing classes they recommended wash out markers and wax chalk. I've taken a liking to the wash out markers, they come out if you spray it down with water, but usually I launder it anyway. The wax chalk is good for marking my dark fabrics, but I have no idea where to buy it, I got mine from my teacher.

I've got a gadget that holds loose chalk and a little wheel lays it down on the fabric. I use it for dark colors when I'm marking hems. If it's a light color, I'm apt to use a plain ol' no. 2 pencil, marking so that it gets cut away.

I tend to use tailor's tacks for pattern features. And snips to mark in the seam allowances.
