-Julie Booth, one of the members of The Printed Fabric Bee has written a wonderful book about printing on fabric at home. She uses every thing but the kitchen sink - on second thought, I think she probably uses the kitchen sink!! As a surface designer, I always enjoy looking at books with fresh ideas. I really enjoyed going through Julie's book. It is packed with good information and beautiful photos.-- Gerrie Congdon, Fabric Artist, member The Print and Fabric Bee
