Basketmaker from Mt. Pleasant, SC (Charleston County). Another basketmaker from the legendary basketmaking family of "Manigault Corner." According to Maggie "she has been doing it for so long that she would feel lost if she didn't sew at least once a day."
She emphasizes the importance of the tool, or "bone," used in the basketmaking process. She prefers a teaspoon handle and "feels lost" if she doesn't have a particular one to use.
