TWiNE member Tamar Shadur was featured in the Hampshire Gazette's Art Makers column, on December 23, 2015, with her Holocaust Memorial Tapestry. Unfortunately, when I pasted the link, it only took me to a page asking me to subscribe....even though I was reading the article in another window. Maybe it will work for you?
