Hi! I'm Kristen, designer of all that is Kite Flying Society. After going to college for art + art education and then teaching high school art for six years, I quit my job to create Kite Flying Society* so that I could be an artist/designer while staying at home with my kids.

A couple years ago, I started putting my beloved neighbor George's recipes on towels, and now I love helping people put their family's treasured recipes and also now children's art onto dish towels! Contact me if you're interested in having your family recipe or your child's art made into an heirloom towel!

When I'm not working with customers on orders or driving my kids around, I enjoy running, biking, baking ginger zucchini muffins, reading with my kids, and finding great children's vinyl for my weekly toddler music class, Record Rodeo.

*My shop name, Kite Flying Society, comes from the Wes Anderson film, Rushmore, one of my favorites! Thanks for stopping by my shop!
