prison embroidery

While it’s not very often the words “prison” and “needlepoint” come up in the same sentence, the British charity Fine Cell Work has put this unlikely pairing at the core of their mission:

Fine Cell Work trains prisoners in paid, skilled, creative needlework undertaken in the long hours spent in their cells to foster hope, discipline and self esteem. This helps them to connect to society and to leave prison with the confidence and financial means to stop offending.

Their Prison Calendar pillow is pictured above.
