About Me – Yolanda Soto-Lopez

My name is Yolanda Soto-Lopez.  I am an avid sewist, knit and crochet designer and craft enthusiast.   I enjoying sharing my crafting adventurers with others.   My mission is to spread the love of creativity.  I am blessed enough to live in sunny Southern California with my husband and 2 dogs.  We are now empty-nesters.  Most of my crochet, knitting, and sewing creations are items that have been requested by my grandchildren.

I spent my early childhood in Chihuahua, Mexico.     I learned to crochet from my aunts Maria Gonzales and Guadalupe Alvarez.  I  learned to sew from my mother.  Some of my fondest childhood memories involved sewing together with my mother and crafting with other members of our family.  It was always a time to share love, good food and lots of fun. 

My motto is “If you aren’t having fun, it’s not worth doing.”  Please consider joining me by submitting your email to become a member.  Please explore all the fun and crafty things found on my site.  You will be able to see some of my YouTube video tutorials.  Visit  my shop and see what kinds of products I use.   Sign up today  and “Let’s Get The Party Started!”
