If your fabric is a cotton, consider trying fibre-reactive dyes
(not sure what Jacquard dye you're using -- I'm accustomed to their acid dye, which is not so much useful for cotton). I've used it a bunch of times with excellent results.
(And as I type this, my embroidery for Cat's cloak trim sits on the table next to me and mocks me. Dear work, give me proper lunch breaks so I can work on this ...)
