We have suggested skill level information for our attendees
to use for picking classes. Please use these same criteria to determine the level of your class
on the application form:
1. BEGINNER: I am a beginner if I have never made a sewn
kite before. I may have never used a
sewing machine either -
or at least not enough to be comfortable with it. The first thing
I should sign up for is
the beginning kite
making and kite sewing class. This will give me a big boost on the
being an accomplished kite sewer. I should look through
the list of classes offered for beginners - there will
to choose from. Since the begining class is normally held on Friday
morning, I may be ready to take
something a bit more advanced
the next day or even that afternoon.
2. INTERMEDIATE: I am intermediate if I can sew
reasonably well. I haven't made
many kites yet, but I have developed some skills and am ready
to move on. (Most of us may fit
into this category.) Even if I
have never made a kite before, but I am an accomplished sewer I
comfortable in one of these classes. I’ll ask the
registrar via an email!
3. EXPERIENCED: I am experienced if I have made lots of kites
and my sewing skills are well
developed. Now I am looking for
a challenge, and to learn different and advanced skills and techniques.
