I have just read on the Raindrop Kites website that Helen Howes will be closing Raindrop Kites at the end of the year. Helen has been making single line kites for about 40 years, but has now decided to call it a day. Her kites were always artistic, and are cherished possessions of those who own them. I understand that Helen will continue with her other businesses, it is only the kite business that is closing.

She plans to complete any unfinished articles in the workshop but will not be creating any more, nor taking any new commissions. Take a look here for her current stock of kites for sale. I'm sure we all wish Helen all the best for the future.
