Annual Fort Worden Kitemakers Conference at Warm Beach
The Warm Beach Camp and Conference
March 20, 2016:
The 2016 conference was another success.
Being at the beautiful Warm Beach facility, located in Stanwood,
Washington, is working well. Our purpose is to make kites, learn new
techniques and methods, see old friends, make new ones, hopefully
win a raffle item, and have a great weekend with other kite
makers and flyers. This happened again in 2016. If you did not join us in 2016,
we hope you will in 2017.
Did you attend? We solicit your favorite
photos for our web site for the 2016 gallery and the classes
page. Have you flown your kite? We definitely would love a
picture to add to our classes page. Please send them to
