The items which I received from Fine Cell Work were second to none, and extremely well-received.
I love the beetroot cushion and it adorns my son’s flat bringing colour and class! Good service and great charity.
The tiny stitches on the lavender are perfect,
lovely bright colours too. Friends delighted.
What a unique item. It is beautifully stitched and designed. I walk past this little gem many times a day and it gives me pleasure to see it each time.
Exactly what wanted as perfect present - better than expected and worthwhile spend. Will order from again as impressed with work they do.
We are delighted with the Aquilegia Bluebells cushions that we bought last month from Fine Cell Work. They are beautifully embroidered and are greatly enhancing our little guest room.
I bought the gold pineapple napkin set and the Threads of Time Book for a friend's birthday. I was so impressed with the quality of the napkins they are even better than they look on the website. I am also impressed with the Fine Cell Work project; the book is brilliant. I will definitely purchase further items and highly recommend the products created.
I first read about this excellent scheme somewhere in a newspaper or magazine and decided to see what I might buy. I bought a lavender bag and I was so pleased with it that I decided to get some more, to present to 5 very old friends on our next meeting. We were a 'Gang' at school together over 60 years ago, and we still very much enjoy each other's company. We meet about twice a year when possible. My friends were completely delighted, and very impressed, both with their lavender bags and with the scheme Fine Cell Work.
Long may the scheme continue!
This contains high value personal accounts of the value of this art form, to people within prisons, many of whom have seldom previously experienced the learning and inspiration which can be gained from this and other forms of visual, musical or performance arts. It is important for this book to be read by people outside the often grim and failing Criminal Justice and Penal System. in the UK.
A newspaper article about Fine Cell Work sent me to your website, where I spotted this little purse. I had been searching for just the right present for a friend's birthday (she is a keen gardener) and this butterfly purse looked perfect. She loved it and sent a thank-you note saying, "Very pretty and useful, and what a great idea!" I would like to add my thanks to hers. Fine Cell Work is doing great work, and I look forward to buying more of your beautiful items.
This cushion goes beyond mere decoration. It’s a powerful design and works beautifully in a modern setting. The skillful craftsmanship is highly appreciated!
Beautiful cushions, amazing colour & fabric - I love them!
Gorgeous as always!
My friend loved the needle case, thank you to the stitcher, and she has always, like me, admired the crafts people of Fine cell
Just stunning - striking and bold with pride of place on the arm chair in the living room. Beautifully made, and very much enjoyed and appreciated.
