British inmates learning needlepoint

You know the saying, ‘A stitch in time, saves nine’. Well, if Fine Cell Work have anything to do with it, it will soon become, ‘A stitch in time, to pay for your crime!’ This improbable charity, teaches needlepoint to British inmates.

The prisoners do the work while they are locked in their cells and get to keep 30 per cent of the profits from each piece that they sell. Fascinatingly, 80 per cent of Fine Cell Work’s stitchers are men. It gives a whole new meaning to chain(stitch) gangs, don’t you think?
