okt2009lehegapiibelehesall1Nancy Bush,  an avid American knitter, became an enthusiast of Estonian handicrafts when she found a book at the Salt Lake City Library about 20 years ago. The book was printed in Russian in 1956 and talked about Estonian Folk Costumes. At the end of the book she encountered pictures of beautiful mittens and socks from different Estonian counties. It was love at first sight. .
Since then she has become further acquainted with the Estonian handicraft culture through other books, magazines and meeting with Estonians abroad and in Estonia.  She found the magazine Triinu, which was published by Estonians abroad, a treasure chest. Nancy Bush has become a devoted promulgator of Estonian handicrafts through her famous knitting seminars, the prestigious handicraft magazine Piece Work and her books written about Estonian knitting traditions. Piece Work magazine has published her stories, pictures and patterns of the Estonian knitting culture, the stories of World War II Estonian refugees’ handicraft work and the Haapsalu lace shawl.

Thoughts Inspired By The Conference At The Stanford University On June 27 Concurrent With LEP-ESTO

One advantage of living in hot Texas is this. On my way to San Francisco I did not finish my cup of coffee by time I arrived at the airport parking lot. But when I returned a week later from ESTO, the coffee in the car was just as hot as when I left it.

The U.S. Embassy congratulates all Estonians as they celebrate their restoration of independence. On August 20, 1991, after more than 50 years of illegal occupation, the Estonian Supreme Council declared the re-establishment of Estonia as an independent state. Though today the exciting events of this day in 1991 seem inevitable, we must never forget the grave risk thousands of Estonians took as they stepped forward and peacefully asserted their right to live in a free and independent country.

ERR News - Countless flags - and drinking glasses - were raised across Estonia on August 20, in honor of Re-Independence Day, the natio-nal holiday marking the day in 1991 when the country officially broke away from Moscow after nearly a half century of Soviet rule.
On August 20 of that year, with Soviet special forces troops surrounding the Tallinn TV Tower and an attempted coup d'état taking place in Russia, Estonia's then legislature, the Supreme Soviet, proclaimed the restoration of the country's independence.
The TV Tower, which the Soviet forces stormed the following day but famously failed to shut down, was this year hosting one of the holiday's larger public events.

Estonian diplomat Marten Kokk has been named the new head of the budget committee of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
