Sew Happy Service Corps – G200747

Join us for 25 hours on ranch-designated sewing projects. Enjoy the beauty of the land, along with the satisfaction of giving back. Prepare to share your talents, your stories, your knowledge, and laughter with friends old and new.

This workshop is part of Family Week. In the mornings, adults will choose one of several mini-workshops (note second choice on registration form), while younger family members will participate in youth activities. Ranch evenings will be a patchwork of family fun. There will a movie night (with popcorn), a scavenger hunt, a campfire and a concert at the end of the week.

Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

 Workshops always 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 double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
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 refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.

    Rogene E. Ashford “Ronnie” from Tulsa, OK, has created “Art” since early childhood. At about eight years old, she got into trouble for creating a very large mural in charcoal on the side of the freshly painted stucco garage! She learned to do embroidery at an early age and remembers playing under the quilt frame while her mom, aunties and grandmother stitched and talked. She studied art through high school and college. Throughout her life, she has tried her hand at many art mediums; two mediums of her art have always been paint and thread. Ronnie is an award winning quilter and is active in several local quilt guilds. She has a small ministry of refurbishing older sewing machines and getting them to gals that would love to have a sewing machine, but cannot afford one. Ronnie currently works as a Mental Health Therapist and an Adjunct Professor at Southern Nazarene University. She enjoys family, friends, art, her chickens, gardening, handwork, music, painting, quilting, reading, walking/running and writing. Her philosophy in life is “Laugh Loudly, Live Fully, Love Deeply and Never Ever Go Backward!’’
