Roxanne’s, A Wish and A Dream

"Prepare for all aspects of your business. Write a good business plan. Get organized. Get help where you can. Keep your goals in mind. Some things will go wrong, roll with it. Always do what is right, not what is easy."

Roxanne's Bio...

In addition to owning and operating her business for 39 years, Roxanne has created over 100 quilting and embroidery patterns, some of which have been featured in national magazines. Her store was named one of the Top Ten Quilt Stores in the country by Better Homes and Gardens Quilting Magazine twice! Roxanne also designs her own very popular fabric lines.

Roxanne was born and raised in Southern California, growing up in Rolling Hills and completing college at the University of California, Davis with a BA degree in Anthropology. She has been married for 47 years and raised 3 beautiful children. Her middle daughter passed away at the age of 11, changing Roxanne in many ways. She looks at people differently because you never know the burden they may be carrying and Roxanne tries to bring a smile into everyone’s day.
