I am a volunteer at the Mabel Bassett C C in McLoud, OK. It is for women. They have a quilting program.

Quilting therapy in reality! This may be a specialized group in a difficult environment but it works! I hope they take on a charity project for another groups after all the foster kids in Texas County get theirs.

There was indeed a quilting program at the GEO Prison in Hobbs, NM. That was several years ago. My understanding is that it stopped when a new warden arrived on the scene.
