Hey Sarah,

I’m glad you got a new screen for the trinity print. I really like that print. :-) Good luck with your AW collection.
This is my first comment on your blog but I’ve been lurking for a while. Before I saw a post about you True Up, I thought it was financially impossible to live from hand printing fabric in Europe and I am glad you are proving me wrong. I love most artisanal jobs, would enjoy doing such a job myself but I don’t how I can make enough money this way. You give me hope and I thank you for that. I’ll continue following your blog and wish you the best.

Greetings,
Femke

Hello! I’ve also been admiring your work for a while, but haven’t commented. I’ve been experimenting with fabric printing, but trying to expose the screen on my own. With small screens I may be able to make it work on my own, but I can’t imagine my primitive method will work well on larger screens. It sounds as though you send your artwork off and have a screen made for you. If you don’t mind, could you share how you located someone who could do that for you and if it is much more costly than purchasing screens and exposing them yourself? Thanks!
Love the pods on graphite, by the way!

Hi Sara, thanks for your message, I’m glad you enjoy the blog. I used to produce my own screens too for the smaller prints but it’s just not feasible for the larger ones. I think you’re based in the US aren’t you, I’m afraid I don’t know of any screen manufacturers there but I think a google search is your best bet unless you know of any other printers in America you could ask?

Thanks! I think I found a couple in the US. I’m still working on a small scale for now. The large screens look a bit intimidating, but it’s nice to know that others have their screen made up by someone with the specialized equipment and experience. I appreciate your time in answering!
