About Me – Yolanda Soto-Lopez

Yolanda Soto-Lopez, is an avid sewist, knit and crochet designer and craft enthusiast.   She enjoys sharing her crafting adventurers with others.   Her mission is to spread the love of creativity.  

She has been crocheting and knitting since childhood.  Sewing is also a passion since she learned to sew by making Barbie clothes for her dolls with her mother.  Once in Middle and High School her sewing abilities really helped her to stay on trend with the latest fashions without breaking the bank. 

She lives in sunny Southern California with her husband.  She is a published author with books on Crochet and Knitting.   Most of her crochet, knitting, and sewing creations are items that have been requested by her grandchildren.

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

She has been sharing her crafting talents on her YouTube Channel, “All Crafts Channel,” which currently has over 600,000 Subscribers and over 100 million video views.  She shares a variety  of her own patterns as well as those others that are often requested from Yarn Companies, (with their full permission).  

She created this blog as a place to be able to share written instructions/ patterns for her YouTube audience.  “I have been requested so many times for a written pattern that I decided to start allcraftschannel.com,” said Yolanda.  

Her motto is “If you aren’t having fun, it’s not worth doing.”   Please explore all the fun and crafty things found on this site. 

You will be able to see some of her YouTube video tutorials.    Sign up today  and “Let’s Get The Party Started!”
