About QuiltsandUkuleles

Sales 2,861
On Etsy since 2018
Video summary: Here I am playing "All of Me" while taking a break from sewing.

I sew and I strum, best of both worlds!

I’ve sewn my whole life—my own clothes, my children’s clothes and then discovered quilting. Soon after I was gifted a ukulele by my husband and a whole new world opened up!

I played guitar and piano, but the ukulele introduced me to a community I never knew existed. Strummers of all levels, coming together, playing songs, laughing, enjoying each other’s company. As IZ sang, ‘what a wonderful world’!

I reached a level where I began to teach ukulele classes and perform at fundraisers, farmers markets, festivals and charities with fellow strummers.

Then I made my own uke strap, then another, then another and here I am, a year later, with over 2,000 uke straps sold all over the world!

I’m so humbled that strummers like my straps. I enjoy the process of finding beautiful material and creating a uke strap.

My husband, Steve, joined in the fun by creating beautiful wooden kazoos.

Thanks to all who have purchased a strap or a kazoo. We are enjoying creating and making music. Peace to all, Nancy & Steve

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

My straps with vegan leather ends can be tossed in the washing machine, cool temperature, and dryer. You may want to tie up cording so it doesn’t get tangled or tear the end tab.

Custom and personalized orders

If you have your own material, I can create strap from it. Send me a message and we can work out the details.

What size ukulele does your strap fit?

My straps fit all ukulele sizes, soprano to baritone, and banjoleles.

What materials are used for your straps?

My straps are made with 100% cotton, with a light padding for soft comfort. The beauty of the fabric print design is on both sides of strap unlike other straps made with webbing. Vegan leather tabs are sturdy, durable and machine washable.

What is Vegan Leather?

'Vegan' leather and 'faux' leather are the same thing – essentially a fake 'leather' material that does not use animal skin. My adult children are vegan so.... :)

What is easier to play, the ukulele or the kazoo?
