Years ago, I was offered this "Tapestree Table" and just couldn't refuse. Zeal has used it off and on, sewing nature treasures into it, signing his name, using it as a "guest book" for his room, and just generally enjoying bringing the needle back and forth through the cloth and creating a work of art while developing fine motor skills.

We hadn't seen it for a while, but with the change of seasons, the table has made a reemergence in our home. With a few new needles and a package of new embroidery floss, the boy is off and sewing again. Now older, he brings a new maturity to the skill and has plans for some new framable art for his room. :)

Any frame or embroidery hoop can be turned into a great creativity tool for boys and girls of all ages. Enjoy!
