Roxanne McElhaney

Jupiter, FL

Favorite quote:

That’s a toss-up between “Measure Twice, Cut Once” and “Less Is More” (although this definitely doesn’t apply to her fabric stash or collection of notions, patterns, embroidery designs or books…well, you get the idea!)


Sews On: BERNINA 830, 930, 135 & 2500DCE Serger

A loyal BERNINA user, Roxanne was surrounded by sewing her entire life. As small a child, she’d play with her grandmother’s quilting frame. When she was barely five, her mother taught her the outline embroidery stitch, and it’s been a love affair with sewing ever since.

As an adult, Roxanne continued to expand her knowledge of needles, learning heirloom sewing and later quilting. Her hard work paid off in Louisville, KY when she won a ribbon in the Kentucky State Fair for a beautiful quilt. For a while, Roxanne also sewed costumes for her daughters’ ballet company.

After moving around between Missouri, St. Louis, Cleveland and Louisville, she eventually settled in the best place in the world: Jupiter, FL! Here, she often goes to the beach, tends to her lovely garden and takes care of her two precious dogs.
