FAQ

Will I personally get feedback on my work?

Mastering Your Market – Pro includes personalized feedback on your work through our forum and weekly chat sessions. If you want in depth collection critiques of your work from three of our participating experts, you’ll want to purchase Mastering Your Market – Master. This level of personalized expert feedback is a difference maker for your business, and is well worth the investment.

I’m concerned about the cost. Is this worth the investment?

YES! We created this workshop to help you get results in the textile design industry. Think of it this way…if you sell each pattern you create in this workshop you will earn around $4,500. Even if you only sell one pattern you will STILL EXCEED the price of the workshop – PLUS have the videos and lessons to keep with you for a lifetime!

In this workshop we do not cover repeats, contracts, marketing or licensing. We cover these concepts in other workshops and within the Textile Design Lab.
