About the designer

Neisha Crosland

A graduate of the Royal School of Art, Neisha Crosland began her career producing designs for Marc Jacobs, Christian Lacroix and Laura Ashley, as well as her own textile label, before moving on to design patterns for fabrics, wallpapers, and soft furnishings.

Neisha Crosland’s aesthetic manages to embrace a refined sense of purism with a love of decoration. Her designs are elegant and intelligent and have an impeccable sense of balance, proportion and personality. Her guiding principle is that ‘decoration should have an emotional appeal’ and that ‘an idea is only good enough if it has a fresh point of view’.

Having designed a series of needlepoint cushions for Fine Cell Work, for her latest collaboration she has translated her Caravan motif into a trio of exquisitely hand-embroidered cushions.

We know that transformation is possible - for our stitchers, for our communities, and for our society as a whole. Your support - through donations or by purchasing products - will help to break the devastating cycle of reoffending and repeated imprisonment.

£20 donation
Will enable us to continue providing paid, creative and productive work to even more prisoners around the UK, helping them to build a brighter future.

£50 donation
Sponsors a prisoner to train as a volunteer 'class coordinator', teaching and mentoring other prisoners.

£250 donation
Covers the volunteer costs of a stitching class in prison.

£500 donation
Pays for the training, materials and support for one prisoner for an entire year, helping them to rebuild a meaningful, independent,crime-free life.

By giving prisoners hope that transformation is truly possible, they can envision a meaningful life after release. But nobody tells the story of how Fine Cell Work has helped them better than the prisoners themselves:

“Stitching allows me to use a totally different part of my brain and personality. I can move away from the more difficult reflections and anxieties and feel creative and purposeful. This means I no longer feel that my life has come to a halt and that I am of no use to anyone else.”

- Tom, FCW Stitcher -

Stylish and useful

Great when you need to have a second pair of glasses with you. This neat, slim, glasses case, works brilliantly for hubby who can protect glasses and easily put into a pocket without the bulk of the standard glasses case. Great design, very practical, lovely stitch work, definitely being used.

Very pleased

I've bought this as a Christmas present for my sister. I'm very pleased with the quality and craftsmanship and hope that she'll love it as much as I do.
Great to be able to buy presents to support such a positive programme.
