    First Builds

    Just a question for the experienced kite builders out there, do you just use a standard sewing machine or do you need an industrial machine. I thought maybe a NPW kite might be the way to go as a starting point. Happy for any tips for a good first kite build. I haven't touched a sewing machine for 20 years.

    Best Kiting Food

    So what is your favourite or best kiting food to get you going in the morning and keep you going well into the day for kiting? Here is what we have as a tradition on the weekends, 50% - %50 flour and ground oats pan cakes. Keeps us going till late afternoon. Served best with a spread of butter, stewed blue berries and cream on top, not to forget a strong cup of black coffee and good company. Variations include, toppings of either nutella, honey or lemon juice+icing sugar.

    NSW and Canberra Buggy Meet

    What a great session - Thanks for organizing @Tiger37 Saw a couple of bluebottles on the beach, the resident sea-eagle, couple of pelicans and lots of seagulls(rats of the sky) Only a few hardy beach goers, a few joggers and an amorous couple enjoying (what they thought was ) the seclusion.

    First Builds

    Hi Matt, any machine can be fine for sewing ripstop, I recently bought a singer heavy duty 4423 from spotlight for around 300, and on my latest build has not missed a beat. Easily sewing through multiple layers and Dacron. I also bought a walking foot for it for around 60 and this has helped immensely when doing the appliqué. Many stitches but I use mainly straight and triple step zig zag. A brilliant machine for the money. regards Doug https://www.spotlightstores.com/sewing-fabrics/sewing-equipment/sewing-machines/singer-4423-heavy-duty-sewing-machine/BP80304571 $299 currently
