For decades Britain has associated needlecraft with our grandmothers, Women’s Institutes and art students.Stitched Stories weaves the interlocking narratives of the Craftivist Collective founder, Sarah Corbett and ex-prisoner Neil who continues to sew for Fine Cell Work. The documentary reveals the power and potential of needlecraft on their lives.
At a time when the prison population is at an all time high and activists are frequently represented as angry citizens, Stitched Stories creates a visual space for prisoners and activists to subvert society’s stereotypes and illustrate the real meaning of needlework.
