1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: light ink on dark fabric?? help :0) on: March 25, 2005 11:23:21 AM
thank you, that makes perfect sense, i probably should have tried it to begin with but i guess i was being lazy Smiley
Since most people cant come about a 10 foot dryer that costs thousands of dollars, you an get yourself a heat gun that might help or possibly a really hot blow drier. It all depends on your inks and colors. A lot of things youc an get right in one pull and if you try it just saturates it like you said, just try a light pull, dry and a slighty heavier pull next, then dry of course Cheesy
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Screening YARDAGE on: March 25, 2005 11:18:30 AM
Interesting! Thanks for the tips!
Well we made a square table that is super smooth and the width of our screen(48") and just long enough(50"?) so that we can both get around it and pull the squeegee.
We also made some clamps that clamp the screen and are hinged to attatch to the table.
The idea is to use spray adhesive and possibly some papaer so that the fabric is stable and wont pull up when we pull the screen up(duh), but can also slide over since the screen stays in place. I think its easier if the sceen is on its hinged clamp for lining things up. We were thinking of just adding a yardstick or something to the edge of the table......Ill try and post a sample once we get things going!

Google "German Language Publications".  They are the USA newsagents that send out subscriptions of Burda, and who the bookstores go thru. You can get three month, six month, one year and those special twice yearly specials!!!
Yay! That did it! I was Googling the wrong thing all along apparently Tongue
I got a year subscription to the regular one and also the "Petite Fashions" one. Im so excited to get them Cheesy

Gloss enamel vinyl ink is the way to go. It is what is used to make sceened signs for businesses and such. Apparently the multi purpous stuff works too, but not as well. None of that water based stuff though Cheesy

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Mens Victorian Era Drape Coat Pattern HELP! on: February 10, 2005 11:12:41 PM
Ive been desperately trying to find a pattern for a drape coat. Ive looked ALLL over for a pattern, so Id like help finding one that can at least be adjusted or suggestions for drafting one since I dont have a coat I can work off??
This place has a few different styles that would work. Im mainly interested in the rolled collar or half collar ones
Thanks!!! Cheesy

This is a bad bad habit! I always pull them out, but I occasionally forget to pull one out, and one time the needle broke and hit the bottom inside corner of my eyelid. I was SCARED of my machine after that!! I think it is bad for your feed dogs as well Undecided
