Welcome to our website!
The Illinois Norsk Rosemalers Association exists to promote and encourage the art of rosemaling: by publishing a newsletter ‘Avisen’, sponsoring classes and holding meetings for members. We participate in northern Illinois events to promote our organization and offer our rosemaling for sale.
