Help from Estonia!

I discovered in the fall that one of the 1950s weavers whom I am following had emigrated to Sweden (via Finland) from Estonia as the Russians invaded Estonia at the onset of WW2.
In looking for material on her, I found that she had written an article in a magazine for Canadian women of Estonian background. And then —ah, ha!—I found the article in a distant library. So I got copy of it, full of excitement, only to discover, that obviously, it was in Estonian. Not one of my languages! Via my sister and her Facebook links, I was put in touch with an Estonian translator, a woman who had already translated material on Estonian textiles. What serendipity! Huge thanks to Dr. Kristi Linask for her translation!
