IFWTWA's Photo Contest

Congratulations, Therese Iknoian!

IFWTWA held its first ever Photo Contest this past fall and we got lots of stunning entries from our members. None moreso than that of Theresa Iknoian, whose “Historic Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Maine” was a huge hit with the judges. Come see!

Title: Quechua Women Dying Wool © Janie Pace

Travel to the village of Chinchero to see Quechua women demonstrate the art of weaving.

Learn how the weavers prepare the baby alpaca wool through the dyeing and finishing process. Then take the opportunity to purchase the beautiful hand-made Peruvian textiles, blankets, shawls, ponchos, sweaters, socks, gloves, and hats that aren’t available at that price elsewhere.

“We were breathing heavy at the altitude of 12,500 feet, even higher than Cusco, Peru. Looking closely, I noticed the baby in the backpack was wearing a Mickey Mouse hat.”
