Photoshop and Illustrator are probably all you need.
If you want to do mostly images and simple vector designs, you might get by with just Photoshop.
If you want to do mostly vector designs and few images, you might get by with just Illustrator.

The bigger problem is understanding screen and fabric printing.

Ok thanks a lot, but is it true that I have to use a Mac book Pro. They are very expensive, I was looking for a cheaper laptop if possible

No, you could use Windows or Macintosh. Though if you're going to do a lot of Photoshop or Illustrator work, you probably want one with a good CPU and plenty of RAM.
