Another outstanding show featuring exquisite pieces of Norwegian art. Rosemaling demonstrations were given both inside the church and outside on the corner of Third and Franklin. A BarneLekeplass (children's play space) featured rosemaling instruction for children.
INRA members entered their painted items into competition. Competition categories were: Professional, Intermediate, Beginner and Golden Agers. Vesterheim Gold Medalists* Nancy Schmidt and Donna Benson judged the competition, and ribbons were awarded to the show winners.
In addition to the competition pieces, rosemaled objects as large as trunks and as small as Christmas ornaments were beautifully displayed and available for purchase. 100s of rosemaled items were sold. Included in the sale were items painted by beginners through professional painters.
Other Show and Sale features were: the raffle of a tine rosemaled by Irene Lamont, Husfliden, and a coffee shop, Kaffekos, where tasty, home-made Norwegian bakery items were enjoyed.
Eager crowds came to view the beautiful rosemaling and purchase "For Sale" items
The outdoor demonstrations drew crowds who were then directed into the competition and sales area.
Tickets for the raffle item were sold."
