Raffle Item: Special Cool Gradient Ripstop (48″ x 72″)

This is the cool gradient fabric used in the products donated by Premier for the other May 2013 raffle – one of the first printed fabrics they’ve done, this material is ripstop polyester colored with a dye sublimation process.
Premier Kites now adds an average of 2 new printed fabrics to their line each year and sharing this special resource allows beginner kite maker a chance to make a kite without a lot of sewing yet have more than one color on their kite. For the master kite maker, this is something that will hopefully unleash endless creativity.
