Excerpt

The tablecloth he speaks of is one of the museum’s most valuable artifacts, consisting of 683 embroidered signatures from those who traveled to defend Norway in Canada in 1940. The historical significance of this object is evident from the fire instructions at the museum. In case of fire, the fire department is instructed to save one specific object from the collections, namely the tablecloth.

    It is so interesting to see this tablecloth. Hats off to the ladies who thought up this idea and then followed through with all the embroidery! I wonder if it was exhibited within their little community when it was finished…
