Join Donna in another simple kite with great impact in the sky.  

This kite has lots of techniques you can apply to other projects, including adding a checkerboard accent.    

A variation on the traditional box, this kite provides more sail area facing the wind enabling it to fly in lower wind conditions than the traditional 90 degree box kite.    

The windward side of the kite has a more dihedral shape making it a rhombus rather than a square.  

Supplies/Equipment Needed for class -- Sewing Machine, thread, ripper, scissors and regular sewing supplies
