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 am seriously thinking of building a kite and want to know how to put my own designs on the sails.  Where can I find info on how to do this?

I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

Hi, Burke,

I'll send a few scraps for you to practice on - both 3/4 oz nylon and some 1/2 polyester. You might could make some interesting patchwork tails from the scraps.

Another good place to look for sewing hints, not necessarily applique technique, is Gary Engvall's Sewing 101 page. Click on this link >> << to go there. He's also got some links to plans on his site.

Good luck on your new adventure. And welcome to another "dark" side of kiting!
