Dayton Garment and Textile District

Over the past 4+ years, the Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC has helped area designers build their brand, establish their clientele, produce runway events, and create editorials.


As their designers spread their wings and grow there has been one persistent struggle...producing their lines! (DE-FI) Designers are currently booked 8+ weeks out and we need your help to ensure that they are equipped to meet the demands for their designs.


Introducing the Dayton Garment And Textile District! We are looking for sewist, seamstresses, fabric makers, pattern makers, weavers, fabric dyers, beaders, embroiderers, and unique fabric vendors to build a community and networking registry of skilled sewn product talent...and yes, these are paid jobs!


Whether you are an employer looking for sewist, or a vendor looking to have something made, the Dayton Garment and Textile District, a subsidiary of (DE-FI) will help connect you to the skilled sewn artist that you need.
