I taped one end of the fabric to the press bed, lifted it up and slipped the
plate in, then pulled the fabric taut down over the plate and sprayed the back
of it and ran it through....perfect print. It was very fine cotton and not too
heavy. It also worked on silk
I will get a list of the books on here, there are about 5 or 6, I will let you
know which one is the best

I've printed on canvas, cotton knit, and plain old broadcloth and
muslin. On canvas it was intaglio with regular oil based inks, on the
others I used fabric inks and linoleum and wood block. The fabric was
laundered first using the fabric inks and set with a hot iron
afterward, but they were to be worn and the canvas piece was not.
Whether or not you launder it first depends on the planned use of the
piece, I think. Come to think of it - I used that intaglio plate and
etching ink on sweatshirts and that worked fine, too! The only caveat
is to use light colored fabrics.

Cheers ~
