Crocheting for the Community

The last place you would expect a thriving crochet program to be is in a medium security prison. Yet, at the Oregon State Correctional Institution in Salem, such a program exists. The crochet program was designed as a service project for incarcerated men to give back to the community.

The club is called Crocheting for the Community. The class started out with 15 men who didn't know the difference between a skein of yarn and a roll of toilet paper, but it has grown into a class of more than 20 men and a waiting list.
