Quilt Your Cause with Karena Koeberle Wells – G230248

Meditate and create a quilt about your cares and concerns. Let your quilt speak for you with imagery and/or words. Learn how you can express yourself with piecing and appliqué. Try making free-hand pieced words– embellishments to expand your vision.

Join a community of quilters for a week of textile transformation. Choose to explore quilting roots and work with traditional quilting methods or stretch your boundaries and try something new. This class will be a hands-on opportunity to explore different methods and techniques of piecing and embellishing quilt tops and transforming fabric. Finished projects can be quilted or framed. Students can expect to complete a small wall quilt or get well on the way of a larger project. Students can bring a sewing machine or sew by hand. All experience levels are welcome. There is instruction, but also plenty of time to work on your own project and enjoy Ghost Ranch. If you have a very clear goal in mind of what you want to make or even if you just want to enjoy “going with the flow”, we welcome you to join.

Virtual Events: Payments made for Virtual Events are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend the event, recordings will be made available to you after the event. For events with multiple sessions, every attempt will be made to make the session(s) available to you before the next scheduled session.

In-person events: Written notification must be received no later than 45 days prior to the start date of your workshop in order to receive a refund, minus a $150 processing charge. No refunds can be processed after that time. We reserve the right to announce a change in leadership or cancel any program 31 days prior to the first day of the workshop. In this event, you may transfer to another workshop without charge or we will refund the full workshop payment. (Many participants have found it helpful to purchase travel insurance). If the cancellation is received less than 31 days prior to your start date, your funds can be left on deposit for another Ghost Ranch workshop or future stay during this calendar year, but you must know the exact dates of your next stay. Or you can choose to make it a tax-deductible donation to support Ghost Ranch. This cancellation policy does not apply to January Term.

Our scholarship funds for 2022 have all been committed. Scholarships will be offered again for programs beginning in January 2023.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

In-person workshops begin with check-in at 3:00 p.m. and a ranch orientation in the evening on the first date listed for the course and end at 10:00 a.m. with checkout on the last date listed.

What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?

Private bath refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy

Private Bath Room: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms. The highest rate tier of Ghost Ranch lodging.

Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two adjoining sleeping rooms. These rooms will only be used as family or group suites, not to be shared by unknown neighbors as in the past.

Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/shower in the lodging building and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.

  • The ranch Dining Hall serves three meals a day on a fixed schedule. We offer a vegetarian option at each meal. While the Dining Hall offers gluten-free items and vegan dishes at some meals, we cannot guarantee that these options will be available for each meal.  Let us know about this need in your registration notes. If it is necessary for a guest to eat a specific diet or if a guest has food allergies, the surest option is to bring personal food items to the ranch. There are refrigerators available for guest use in a few common/public spaces.
