Kites In The Sky    Quality kite kits that work!  

Cat writes...."I started learning about Kites in the mid 1980’s, but it was not until right around 2000 when kiting really started becoming an integral part of my life. 
 
I love most all things kites and attend every kiting event I can.

I am an active member of the AKA and enjoy competing in the Fighter Kite competitions, frequently placing and winning once.   Over the past 6 years I’ve been a regular contributor to the AKA Kiting Magazine.   In 2014 I served briefly as Interim AKA Region 8 Director.    In 2014 I was awarded the AKA Volunteer of the Year.  

Over the past 20 years I’ve had the good fortune of being able to serve as an assistant to Marty and Richard Dermer in 100 plus workshop presentations; teaching about kites, kite history and how to make simple, great flying kites. 

For 10 years I managed the perpetual kite displays in 11 of the Hideaway -2 Pizza Restaurants, in OKC, Tulsa, Edmond and Norman.

Every year I hold one or more workshops in my home.  Love being with friends who are all enthusiastic about making kites, sharing ideas and being creative.  With each workshop is a pre-kite repair workshop where we go through kites and make all kite repairs needed to get everyone’s kites ready for the coming kite season.  Kite fliers come from a 150-mile radius. 

In 2008 I opened an online store,  “Kites In The Sky”.   I’ve made it my mission to sell quality kite kits that work.  Visit it at www.kitesinthesky.net.
