Hi Suzette...I always buy my fabric to print on from Crafty Computer Paper - they quite often have special offers and they always arrive very quickly (Royal Mail Strikes allowing!!) Take a look - I buy cotton sheets and organza mainly and never had any problems

HI Suzette, Angela has beaten me to it, but I buy from them too, I've tried quite a few brands, and I am very happy withn their products, they are really good, and much better than some I've used.

looks fun - I've used printing fabric for labels but haven't actually gone much further yet but some of those ideas look very tempting!

I print all mine on PFD fabric, just cut it to size and spray baste it onto a piece of printer paper and away it goes. Far cheaper than buying specially prepared sheets.
This quilt was printed that way.

that sounds good, the sheets are expensive to buy. Where do you get yours from may I ask.Please....preety please. I buy mine from Rio designs at the mo. Unless it is for postcards then I just use plain cotton and go for it.

PFD fabric is Prepared for Dyeing, it doesn't have any finishes in it. I have used it for cushions and have washed them although there has been some fading in the sun but so do commercial fabrics if you are silly enough to let the sunlight get to them too much - ask me how I know that one!
I get mine from Whaleys of Bradford. Very good service but be aware that prices don't include VAT.
Suzette, to stop your pieces jamming cut off of small piece from the bottom right hand corner - or left if it is catching on that side. Hey presto it will go through without a problem.
