Christmas Jams

It's that time of year and our jam space is pretty much we just need the jammers! On Monday, December 15th (7-8:30) we'll be hosting a uke jam for all you ukers out there. Our crack team of highly accredited musicologistas have worked day and night for months creating the 2014 Ukulele Christmas Tunebook! It's hot off the presses, so get yours while supplies last - oh yeah, it's free.

We'll also be holding a Christmas Fiddle jam for all the fiddlers out there. Other acoustic players are also welcome! The Christmas Fiddle jam will take place on Saturday, December 20 (7-8:30).

Check out the "Schedule of Events" and "Location" menu above for more details. 

Hope to see you there!

The 2014 cnyUke Christmas Tunebook  - more jingle - more merry - more figgy pudding!

embroidering spring

I'm still having a good time focusing on embroidery! I found this jute bag at my local Hobby Lobby and thought it would make the perfect canvas. I really like that the bag itself is lined, so I was able to hide ends between the jute outer layer and the lining without having to put a lining in the bag myself - eek!

I kept with mostly bright colors in hopes of helping to bring on spring here in the northeast. It seems to be working! Here are a few shots and close ups of the finished product.

winter works

The cold and snow has had me a bit down this winter ..... where is spring???? Anyway, an idea came into my head one day as I was looking for a new gig bag for my soprano ukulele. I noticed these hemp gig bags made by Eddy Finn and thought that it might be fun to spice one up with a bit of surface decoration. I have to admit it's been years since I've embroidered, so I thought of the project as a way of practicing some stitches I had long forgotten. As you can see from the pics I also added a bit of my tatting that I found kicking around and sewed on a few shiny things here and there.

And of course I can't finish there.... I ordered the concert size uke bag and I'm starting once again!

Here's the finished work!
