The past Ft. Worden Kitemakers Conference at the Warm Beach facility, located in Stanwood, Washington, was a great success once again with teachers and attendees from around the globe. The facilities continued to be comfortable and convenient, and the purpose, well, you know…  we made kites, learned new techniques and methods, saw old friends, made new ones, hopefully won a raffle item, and had a great weekend with other kite makers and flyers. We hope you join us this coming year for more kite making during a fun, relaxed weekend.
