Shopping: Fine Cell Work needlepoint sale

Fine Cell Work is wonderful in every way. It’s a charity that teaches needlework to prisoners, and sells their work through a great website and occasional events. Best known for their cushions, the inmates (who are mostly men) also make rugs, quilts, bags and even tea cosies. Their needlepoint, surface embroidery and applique is of the highest order and the wonderful designs range from classic roses and tiger stripes to abstract designs and graphic stripes. This week Fine Cell work are having their annual Christmas sale at Notting Hill’s 20th Century Theatre. We’re already loosing sleep about how to reign in desire, etc.
