As you can see, things are still under construction around here. I hope to have the new home all tidied up and ready for visitors over the next few days. In addition to just moving the contents of the old site over, I'm writing a lot of new text, as well as setting up pages for upcoming kites.

A quick update...

I've spent a lot of time thinking about pricing this past week. Pricing has always been one of the two hardest tasks for me in relation to the business of making kites (or anything else). The other task being talking or writing about my creations. I know both jobs are critical, but neither comes naturally. I'm finally starting to get my notes together for the new copy for the kite pages, but could really still use the help of a few people that own my kites. Maybe a quote or testimonial?

With the help of a couple friends and confidants, I've made the decision that I need to make some pricing adjustments.

If you would do me a favor and poke around the site a bit.(?) There's still a LOT of filler text, but I'm mostly concerned with the form and logic of the pages right now. I've still got a week or so before I need to panic about the copy for the pages! Please let me know, either as a comment here, or via email if you find something terribly amiss. Thanks!

Rob was asking about tail variants for the MacStar concept. As you can see, the possibilities are mind-boggling. Here are a few -

Workshop notes...

Last August, I did a kite building workshop with PA's Keystone Kiters.  In the followup, I set up a page for workshop notes.  It was created to answer questions about methods and sources.

The page is now open for your information.  Feel free to join in on the discussion.  You can find it here.
