Thirteen Threads (www.thirteenthreads.org), a Maya women’s educational program based in Panajachel, is putting on its first International Women’s Day event. Representatives from each of its 22 participating Maya women’s groups will display their weavings and natural products. There will be live music, talks by indigenous women leaders, a mini-workshop on natural dyeing of fibers, free yoga class, a raffle with great prizes, face painting, and lots more fun for the whole family. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to supporting Thirteen Threads’ educational programs. Come out to celebrate and support women leaders!

Sat., 6th, 10am – 6pm
Centro Commercial “Los Barandales,”
at the bottom of Calle Santander,
Panajachel, Lake Atitlán.
