I'm a supplier to Hang em High and have been trying to get ahold of Bonnie for several months.  Their website says they're on vacation and no one picks up the phone.  Does anyone know if they're still in business?

Don't know what their status is since the damage caused by Sandy.

As far as I can find out BOnnie hasn't made any final decisions on closing permanently.  Everyone is waiting on word from her right now.

Sorry to be the bearer of 'BAD NEWS' but I just talked to a reliable "insider" in the kiting community and was informed that Bonnie will NOT be re-opening Hang-em High ...ever ...due to physical ailments and such.

The GOOD NEWS is that Marieanne & Jon Trennepohl of Skyburner Kites and Kites & Fun Things . com are now the major American importers of PC-31 sail cloth material for kite-making purposes. You can order sail cloth from them but you will need to call them on the phone and order it directly as they do not have PC-31 listed on either of their websites.

This isn't really a surprise.  I heard from a few people that know her that she was planning on selling now and I know she has wanted to sell the business for a while to retire and only kept it open for the community and the memory of her husband who started it.  It had to be a hard decision for her and though it will be a loss to the kiting community she deserves to enjoy the time she has left and I hope she stays well enough to.  Bonnie and her husband did a lot for the kiting community over the years.

Although I didn't personally know her, I had ordered kite-building supplies from her on numerous occasions and the service she supplied will be missed. I too wish her an enjoyable retirement! As I mentioned, it appears that Jon & Marieanne will be filling the void for ....at least some of the kite building supplies that Hang-em High offered! I've spoken to and placed orders with Marieanne on multiple occasions and she is ALWAYS cordial, friendly and helpful, even when I've been a little 'disorganized' in placing my orders!

Sorry to hear that too, I ordered my first fabric from Hang'em High in 1989 and always looked over their site when needing any supplies. It wasn't really unexpected though. Glad to hear Jon & Marieanne are stepping in to fill the need as they have so many times.
