Precious H. Lopez - Instructor
..... has had a passion for crafts since childhood. Precious's interest in such activity started while taking home economic classes in grade school, which later on became her favorite course. Wanting to have unlimited designs for her Barbie & Ken clothes, Precious took the knowledge learned and began applying those skills and techniques. By the age of nine; she was able to hem, mend and sew buttons onto her school uniforms. From then on, Precious's skill in artistry and craftsmanship has progressed. Her creativity has embellished many well-known projects to date and has allowed her to generate many ideas of her own. Precious was able to make use of her creativity when she became an event planner in Washington, DC. Today, she continues to strive for the latest sewing trends and projects as she applies it to help the younger generation and the young at hearts learn to sew.
Precious, together with her husband, Marcelo, has four kids: Nikki, Casey, Paolo, and Bella. On her free time (besides "creating" LOL), she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, singing, playing tennis, and enhancing her skills in digital design.

If you order a fat quarter and a yardage cut of the same fabric (for example, you purchase a 1 yard cut and 1 FQ), the fabrics will be cut separately unless you request otherwise.
