Kite sewing videos

Here are three short narrated videos on kite sewing techniques. It is much easier to pick up the details by watching someone do it rather than reading about it. You can watch these larger on YouTube or Full screen by clicking on the icons bottom right of each video.

Just for demo purposes I'm working on the top triangles of a 1.7m rokkaku but the techniques can be used on all kites.

Here is a page listing all my KAP related videos.
