This is a business of a lot of details and there are a lot of moving parts to building a successful apparel or accessory or other sewn product business.  Sometimes you need a one-on-one with an industry veteran for advice.  DDI is here for that!  Mentoring is $85 per hour and you can meet with a selected mentor, or several over time - whatever best fits your needs.  You can read full bios of our mentors on the "About Us / Our Stories" page of our website. Contact DDI to schedule an appointment:
