FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A craft project provides hope for women at the Fresno County Jail.
They're learning life and job skills one stitch at a time.
Female inmates showed their finished quilts using equipment and supplies provided by the "Incarcerated Persons Welfare Fund."
One of their works included a "thank you" for retired Fresno County Sheriff, Margaret Mims.
The program started about a year ago, giving women an opportunity to learn sewing techniques that could be used in a future job.
The next project includes pillows and quilts to be donated to the Marjaree Mason Center to help comfort domestic violence victims at the shelter.
