Motorbike Special

Ask any motorbike enthusiast and they'll tell you there's nothing better than a long ride on a summer's day. A cool breeze, cruising along a country road..alright, as long as it isn't raining, which is not that likely with our wonderful British summer!

Well, if long hot bike rides are out of the question, or if perhaps you just need a rest after your ride, it's a perfect opportunity for a spot of motorbike stitching. Even if you're not a rider yourself, they're a great stitch, something really different to the usual designs. We also have a number of scooter designs, which are very popular - see our bike countdown below.

Here's our latest motorbike design, hot off the presses. It's a Harley Davidson Fat Boy caricature and I think it looks fantastic. In fact,  when I've finished my train design that I'm on with right now, I think I'll stitch this one!

Stitchtastic Bikes

This month's newsletter is a little bit different, as I'd like to highlight a few of our stitched motorbike designs that our stitchers have sent in.

We find that many of our stitchers are very proud of their completed designs, more so than with a lot of the designs that they have stitched in the past. Perhaps this is because many Stitchtastic stitchers stitch a motorbike or car for a friend or relative, or because the designs really are different from the usual. Anyway, why ever they send pictures in, we're just glad they do!

If you'd like to send us a photo of your completed Stitchtastic work, you'll find my e-mail address at the bottom of the newsletter, or feel free to use snail mail, the address is on the website.

You can see more of our stitched designs in our gallery on the website.
