 Member’s Spotlight


My Mother’s Legacy

My Mother’s Legacy is a store for the seamstress and those who dream of creating with fabric and thread. We offer BabyLock sewing machines, fabric, and all the sewing and quilting supplies that you will need to get the job done. If you are not already expressing your creative side, try enrolling in one of our classes that will teach and inspire you.

Need a clean up after that project? MML can handle that too by showing you how a new Simplicity vacuum and cleaning tools will make the job easier. Simplicity vacs are made in the USA.

Exciting things are happening at My Mother’s Legacy.  We are in the process of moving our store to a new location at 704 North State Street!   A date for the Grand Opening will be announced soon.

The Chamber is a great place to help people find your business when you move or when they are looking for a service your business provides.


MML’s goal is to inspire, rejuvenate and nurture the art of sewing. We will keep you in stitches!

Hope to see you soon.
