Meet the Makers

Our makers are from all walks of life.  Many of them have ‘day jobs’ otherwise referred to as ‘what I have to do so I can make my art’ and other not-as-nice phrases.  But the main thing is that they are almost exclusively living in the DFW area, and as such are about as ‘local’ as you can get.

Most of them do have websites, Etsy pages, and /or Facebook sites.  So without further ado, I will be happy to list them here along with active linking to their own sites:
