She will be selling the bags and providing art quilt classes at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts. You can learn more about Carol and her art quits at

“Maker” the word according to Merriam-Webster means, “one who makes” and according to Urban Dictionary, “those who love to create things in their spare time.”
