If MapQuest told me the truth*, it's off of Johnson Ferry a bit north of Paper Mill. This means it is not close enough to be a major temptation, but near my usual back-roads route to the Cobb Galleria. That's where Stitches South is held, so perhaps I'll check it out when I go there next month.
*Online maps have been known to lie. I once spent an hour driving randomly around Parma, Ohio, thinking I was in a completely different part of Cleveland. Stupid online map put the airport in the wrong place.
