Members like you have always been our most valuable resource. At this time of year, we invite you to remember what the Club does all year long: great programs, great community and a wonderful meeting place. Join the ranks of members who have sustained the Club—and kept our Viking values strong—for nearly 125 years.
You know how great it is to be a member of the Swedish Club. But do your friends and relatives know? Why not give them a gift membership? It benefits them and helps the Club. After you make your purchase, we can wait till Christmas to notify the new member, or give you a certificate to wrap up—just call 206-283-1090 and let us know.

UW student Karl Bloomberg is researching Nordic decorative arts and their role in forming Scandinavian-American identities. If you have keepsakes from "the old country," Karl invites you to take his online survey. He’s interested in all of it—rosemåling, kurbits, dala horses and other items.
Swedish School Gets Noticed

So you want to talk to someone in Sweden, but you don't know who. Why should that stop you? The Swedish Number (46.771.793.336) is the brainchild of a Swedish tourism agency. Dial it and be connected to a random Swedish volunteer, anywhere in the country. Like a wrong number, only better. If you try it, tell us how it goes!
Donate to our scholarship fund and support a student studying Swedish language and culture in the UW Scandinavian Studies department. Invest in the future of Swedish-American cultural exchange.
