Recently, I sent off for Jen Jones' latest catalogue and also her new DVD which shows the three previous exhibitions.
Here is the DVD. There is a "walk around" with Jen and Gwenllian Ashley (the exhibition's designer) in which they discuss selected quilts. In addition, there are still photos of other quilts in each of the exhibitions. I enjoyed watching this DVD, the only thing that bothered me was the music; it is a modern song in an indie/folkie sort of vein and as there are no credits on the packaging I could not find out who the musician was. Liz N said that she turned the sound off when she was watching it!
Here is the newest catalogue for this year's exhibition - "A Quilted Bridge". It shows the great similarity between the Welsh quilts and the Amish quilts. There are lovely examples from Jen's collection, as well as Amish quilts on loan from the American Museum in Bath.
This exhibition is of course complimented by Dorothy Oslers' recent book publication, Amish Quilts and the Welsh Connection, which sets out clearly the results of Oslers' research on Welsh settlements in the USA.
To get your copy of the catalogue or DVD, copy, just email Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org
