Howdy Y’all!

I am tickled pink that you have decided to enroll in Sew Happy: Specialty Service Corps July 14th – 20th, 2019 ! We will have such fun sewing curtains and I hear we may be doing dresser scarves, for the Ghost Ranch Guest Rooms.

What will we do? We give 25 hours of sewing time to the Ranch, so the past years we have been quite productive during the morning session from 900-1200. Then after lunch in the afternoon some gals like to keep right on working and others like to take a break and come back after supper. So you can choose which works best for you. You will have plenty of time to explore Ghost Ranch and enjoy those glorious sunrises and sunsets!

What should you bring?

  1. If you are driving and can bring your own sewing machine please do! If you are flying then rest easy I do have several older sewing machines available at Ghost Ranch for you to use.
  2. If you can bring your basic sewing/quilting supplies that would be great. You know that it so much easier to use your own pair of scissors or rotary cutter. Don’t worry if you cannot bring anything, I will have some basic sewing/quilting tools available for you to use.
  3. Feel free to bring your own personal quilting, sewing projects as there will be time to play too! I will have a couple of fun easy projects available for you to play if you want to!!
  4. Please check the catalog for all those other things that might be helpful to bring for your stay at Ghost Ranch.

Together we will sew up a storm to make Ghost Ranch even more beautiful and along the way we will tell a few stories, laugh, create and build new friendships together. Then as the week draws to a close may you feel inspired, replenished, and refreshed from your hours of service. So when it comes time to pack and head home, I hope that you pack up a few new friendships and many happy memories of your time here at Ghost Ranch.

Personal update: Grandbaby #1 is about to turn 2 and I am one Happy “GiGi” and Yes – I have already had him on my lap sewing at the sewing machine! I am also working on getting my strength back as I have been down quite a bit this past year. I fell 4 days after my return from Ghost Ranch last year and did quite a number on my poor foot, then 4 days after that fall my 100+ year old tree fell on my little red truck. So picture me in a rental car in a walking cast car shopping! At least I earned myself a new car and a custom tag…“Cndrela”.

Anyway, here’s hoping I will have some of my walking stamina back by July, if not I might just be a golf cart girl!

If you have ideas, suggestions, requests or questions, please contact me at or 918-902-1999.

I am excited and honored to be guiding y’all at Ghost Ranch. See you in July!

Be Blessed and Know You Are Loved,

Ronnie Ashford
