HRH Princess Madeleine has canceled her trip to Seattle. It is expected that Crown Princess Victoria will open the Nordic Heritage Museum's Fashion and Arctic Summer event on May 8 in her place.
We hear this event has SOLD OUT. Do not despair, however, the Nordic Museum in Seattle offers events all year long and to stay informed, why not join the network of the Arctic Circle? (Contact Stina Cowan at firstname.lastname@example.org) Here's a little of what you may have missed this time:
