Printing On Fabric!
Printing On Fabric - A Video
For Shirley's Popcorn Quilt
At the September meeting of the Bluffton Scrap Artist Quilters I presented "Printing On Fabric". This was then used as a basis for the free 25 minute video presentation on our training web-site.
Printing on fabric is a service that Forever In Stitches has always provided. In fact, I have been printing on fabric for about 28 years! At Forever In Stitches we print on cotton fabric from the very small to the reasonably large [19" by 13"].
We also sell the supplies to print on cotton.
The topics of the talk included:
  • What Is Printing On Fabric?
  • Tools Needed
  • Things You Can Do
  • What Kind Of Printing For What Purpose
  • Warnings
  • Steps
  • Examples
  • Using Word®
  • Q&A
The range of topics included the location of the printing: printing at home; using the services of a quilt shop such as Forever In Stitches; and using web-services to print in large yardage quantities.
The main focus was on printing on cotton. A few comments were made regarding printing on heavy fabric such as sweatshirts and printing on synthetics.
Extensive examples were given of at home/shop projects, including:
  • Custom Labels

  • Large Blocks [19" x 13" and larger]

  • Wedding Block
    Huge Label [over 40"]

  • Memory Quilts

  • Memory Quilts With Printing/Names

  • Using Newspaper Articles & Photographs
This, combined with information on the tools/equipment needed, the steps in printing, using Word to create printed items, and some warnings, the quilter should have an expanded understanding of the possibilities and the ability to "make it happen".
Happy printing and quilting!
Enjoy your blessings this day!
