Sew Happy Service Corps – G210741

2021 “Sew Happy” Service Corps Join us and work on assigned sewing projects for the Ranch, amidst the immense beauty of the land, along with the satisfaction of giving from your heart and your hands. All levels of sewing/quilting experience are welcome (even those who have never sewn before).

There are many steps in the process that requires no sewing. We might be making masks, curtains, bed toppers, wall hangings and of course special projects and “Mending” for the Ranch. As you share your time and talents in this week- long adventure and help to beautify and give back to this Sacred Space, there will be plenty of learning, chatter, giggles and laughter as new friendships are built and old ones renewed. 2021

Supply List What to Bring:
Please know that all fabrics and thread will be provided for the Ranch Projects. If you are driving and it is nice to bring your own sewing machine and sewing tools, like scissors/seam ripper/rotary cutter and favorite rulers. Make sure they are marked clearly with your name. Please bring a sewing/quilting project or two that you want to work on and any project that you are needing input/assistance on. If you are flying it is too hard to bring much, please know that we will have basic sewing machines and sewing hand tools available for your use for the week. So just pack those extra fun projects and patterns to be able to play! Please bring your energy, creativity, happy attitude and sense of flexibility and humor.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to give me a holler. Stay Safe and Be Blessed, Ronnie Ashford 918-902-1999 ronnieashford@yahoo.com

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.

Virtual workshops will have a varied schedule that is identified within each workshop description.

During Covid safety period - single occupancy lodging is the standard
  • During Covid-19 periods, all lodging types will be single occupancy at no additional charge. Of course, you can share a room with a spouse, partner, family or another person that shares your full-time residence. The extra folks that share a room will pay for workshop registration fees and meals.
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.
