The Sleep Quilt - a kickstarter campaign October 17, 2017 16:50
Best-selling author Tracy Chevalier began making quilts as research for her novel The Last Runaway. She soon became a committed quilter, and it was not long before she found out about Fine Cell Work. When curating ‘Things We Do in Bed’, a quilt exhibition for Danson House in south London, she soon realised that here was an opportunity to commission a unique work of art from the prisoners trained by Fine Cell Work – the Sleep Quilt. This beautiful quilt comprises of 63 individually stitched squares, carefully pieced together to help tell the story of Sleep as told by our stitchers.
Our exciting news is that the Sleep Quilt has gone full-circle and is now the subject of a book itself! And we are looking to the great British public to help be a part of the team who gets the book to publication by supporting our kickstarter campaign, a crowdfunding initiative whereby your donations will help to bring this beautiful book alive, just in time for Christmas.
