Our production process
Each of our products goes on a long and impactful journey before it is ready to be sold. And every one of our items touches the life of at least one prisoner or prison leaver in some way.
Our needlework kits are put together in our prison workshops before being distributed from our London hub to our wonderful volunteers. These inspirational supporters teach people in prison the necessary skills to craft each piece. The completed stitchwork is then returned to us, to ensure it meets our exacting standards, before finally being sent back into a prison to be 'made up', turning it into the final product (e.g. stuffing and adding zips to cushions).
In total, this process can take up to 200 hours and over 70,000 stitches (per piece!)
We know that every single one of our products boosts self-esteem, builds confidence, has a positive impact on a stitcher’s mental health, and gives them the opportunity to transform their lives.
By purchasing a product, you become a part of that journey.

Support our work

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.”

Bought the Battersea Power Station cushion as a Christmas present. It’s a strong design in bold colours and beautifully stitched. We live near the Power Station and have a number of paintings and prints of this beautiful building. Our cushion was made by stitcher Welders. Thank you.
I live near the power station and love its presence in this part of London . This is a fabulous quality , bright and vibrant cushion - thanks to my stitcher ( Jones) - you are a great talent in this organisation. So pleased to support your enterprise.
The cushion was a present to an architect friend and he fell in love straight away with the design. The tapestry work is so beautiful and I’m sure the cushion will be much loved for many years. I do hope that more iconic buildings Will be in your repertoire in the future.
