Workshop Instructor: Serina Lee started her leather career slowly in 2009, doing a bit more each year. She was self taught until she attended the Southwest Leather Workers Trade Show in Prescott in 2015, where she learned many great things from so many wonderful instructors! After attending the show, her leather world really took off! I no longer felt alone in the leather world and it was a great feeling! Serina does primarily custom orders in her leather shop. She is married to Larry of 36 years, has 3 adult children (with in-laws), and 8 beautiful grandchildren. She lives on their small ranch in Central Ca. For fun and relaxation Serina loves to spend time with grandkids, going to their sporting events, visiting family in other states, trail riding, loving on animals and woodworking!
