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
Provides a prisoner with the materials for one tapestry cushion (100 hours of creative activity).
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.
Sponsors a prisoner to train as a volunteer 'class coordinator', teaching and mentoring other prisoners.
Covers the volunteer costs of a stitching class in prison.
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.”

Charming stitch work, pretty cards which make a lovely gift. Great attention to detail.
Lovely handmade card. As a stitcher myself I can appreciate the beautiful sewing.
So pleased with the card for my mum. She thought it was beautifully made and it had pride of place amongst the others. A little bit of joy from your talent!
Beautifully crafted card and hand written message that my mum really appreciated for Mother's Day up in Yorkshire - thank you!
The card is very well made and feels much more special than a mass produced card. It is so good that my girlfriend is going to frame the card I gave her. It's been made with a lot of care. Thank you
