Seattle's 17th of May advertising opportunity
- This year Seattle's 17th of May Committee is expanding the booklet published for
the 17th of May celebration in Ballard (Seattle) to include advertising for
artisans and musicians producing Scandinavian items. This celebration is said to
be the third largest in the world (after Olso and Bergen).
If you teach, demonstrate, knit on commission, published a book or video on
knitting, or are available for bazaars and fairs, we will list you for a $25
fee. The booklet will be distributed prior to and on the 17th of May at various
locations in Seattle (typically, the places that sell our 17th of May pins). If
you are interested in listing, or know of other that may be interested in some
very targeted advertising, let me know by emailing medirectly at
We hope to build this booklet into a directory of artists and musicians, goods
and services for the Scandinavian community in the Pacific Northwest.
If you know of artisans (instrument builders, wood carvers, Hardander
embroiders, rosemalers, weavers, etc.) who might be interested, please pass on this
We need to have all ads in by the end of March, so email me, even if you are
undecided, so that you will at least be on my list and get the details.
