Hey Julie that's cool, they remind me of Chopper bikes!

Comment by Julie Barkley on July 7, 2014 at 13:41

Here is a picture of the bike my husband re-did he custom did the seat.  He's an upholsterer and here's a pic of the seat covers he made too. Hope it's alright to post.

I am in for the August swap!
Comment by Lynn Williams on July 7, 2014 at 12:49

I just joined this group, and I also would be interested in taking part in an ATC swap for August.  I also cross stitch and do a little embroidery.  My husband just finished rebuilding a vintage Schwinn bicycle for our son's wedding in August.  And I watched my first tour de France race yesterday!  That was exciting, and this will be fun!

Hey Julie I love vintage bikes, this theme should be up your street then. Tracey welcome to the group cross stitch is certainly allowed. I will post all the swap details this week.

Hi everyone, I've just joined this group.  I would be interested in taking part in an ATC swap for August.  I'm only just learning various different stitches but I have been cross stitching since I was 14 (I'm now in my 30s), is cross stitch allowed?  Some other networks are a bit strict!

A bicycle them would be cool my husband and I just started about 6 months ago collecting and fixing up old schwinn bicycles!

Comment by Sarah Whittle on July 4, 2014 at 16:20

Great that's three of us so far! Need to think of a theme too! We are having the tour de France coming to the town I live in this weekend so maybe a bicycle theme would be fun?

Comment by Sarah Whittle on July 4, 2014 at 14:41
