Here's a short video clip featuring Joanne Hodgson, Manager of Kirkleatham Museum, Jane Riley, the designer of the Fabric of the North exhibition, and Sally Reckert, who brought the exhibition together in the first place. If you can't get to FOTN, this'll give you some idea of what you're missing. And if you're thinking of visiting, it'll convince you.
Sorry we can't show the video right here, but this website is run on a shoe-string! Click the link, though, and you can enjoy the clip on Facebook.
