Coffee Creek Quilters

Coffee Creek Quilters teaches quilting classes to women incarcerated at the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, Oregon. Since 2002. It has provided a positive, hands-on program that gives students an opportunity to learn and practice many life-enhancing skills.

“Quilting teaches patience, perseverance, problem-solving and the importance of quality work. When students complete their quilts, they develop a positive, “I can do it” attitude. Our goal is to nurture students self-esteem so that they will be more successful living in the community after release from prison.”
