I almost missed this thread...so used to seeing South EAST Mich that it didn't even register at first. I'm actually from The Land Where No One Sews (aka, SW Mich) - St. Joe area. In all of my time here I've only seen one other person from SW MI - Holland, I believe, and she was inactive before I really even became a member. Where is your sister from? I take it she's not a member here?

My sister lives near Hickory Corners...NW of Battle Creek. ...She is not a member yet. I am hoping to get her signed up once their computer is finished repair. .....Thanks for posting.....
Have you lived all your life in St. Joe area? ....My sister & I get together for a few weeks every year at her place & sew & visit family. There is a neat shop in Hastings we go she has mini sewing classes & nice fabrics...it is called Sister Sisters. ....
Thanks again....

DH & I are heading "home" for 2 weeks via the Badger ferry next week. Any new fabric stores in Battle Creek & surrounding area? Anything going on over Labor Day weekend my DSIS & I could attend? She said she had not heard of anything yet. We plan to go to Hastings to a couple of nice shops there. Hopefully Amish town too in far northern IN. ............. any other recommendations ? Thank you!
