Bay Thread has helped many designers and creative minds with creating patterns for their apparel lines. I also dedicate time to help entrepreneurs with advice based on my experience and knowledge that has been gained during my start up time and as I continue to grow this creative fashion design service business. When you start a small business there are many professionals and business centers, such as Paul Terry and Associates or the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, that offer great services to entrepreneurs seeking to start a small business or who already are in business…… A group of Tibetan Entrepreneurs that have been selected to study on the Stanford campus and build their business skills connect with Bay Thread and other local social enterprises. Paul Terry and Associates mention the importance of seeking advice; “We specifically talked about the importace of getting hands-on advice and specific direction from other small business owners.”
