‘A Really Superb Display’

The above is a quote from a Berkshire couple who visited the Rosedale and Hartoft Treasured Textiles Exhibition on Bank Holiday Monday. Around 180 other people from the dale and beyond called into the Updale Reading Room over the weekend to enjoy the display of textiles with a Rosedale connection, put on by local effort and with the support of Ryedale District Council’s Small Scale Creative Economy Scheme.
