Email communication 15 November 2017 from Jane Hutt AM
I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch sooner to congratulate you on the excellent exhibition which is being displayed in the Senedd and is attracting a great deal of interest.
Jane visited the exhibition on 16 November.
Jane was very complimentary and sent the following quote from a press statement:
Vale AM Jane Hutt sponsored a remarkable exhibition in the Senedd with quilts made by members of the Cutting Edge group depicting scenes, symbols and family memories of lives lost in WW1.
“These inspiring and moving quilts accompanied by poppies were displayed during Remembrance time and attracted a great deal of interest from Assembly Members and visitors to the Senedd including many school and college groups.
I would like to thank the artists who made these quilts giving their personal statements about their works of art linked to WW1. The Cutting Edge Group meets at Ystradowen Village Hall attracting people from Cowbridge, Bridgend, Llantwit Major, Cardiff and Porthcawl and have become renowned for the way they engage their work with the local community and historical events.”
