One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I have a nice late 80's Eagle delta from Diana Aurigemma. The leading edge pockets towards the wingtips are getting a bit threadbare. Whats the best way to reinforce that?

quicker fix is to have reinforcing pockets put on over the end where it is wearing through.
the best fix would be to open up a couple of feet of the sleeve and then reinforce from the inside out to retain the design on the outside...this would take a skilled hand and machine.
