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.

I use the chalkboard fabric from Joans.  ITs a good thin vinyl but you will need to back it with some dacron (insignia tape works well as does  the seam aid Joans sells) or it stretches and cuts easily on sharp rod ends since it just has a screen mesh cheese cloth backing.  ITs what I used on this nose job.  Bisonyl fabric is almost the same thin pvc vinyl but I think it has a stronger backing mesh.
