Hoffman Challenge Entries:
For 30 years, Hoffman Fabrics selected one of their fabrics and conducted a yearly challenge.
I have participated in the
Hoffman Challenge since 1997. Each year from 1997 thru 2018 I used this challenge as an
opportunity to try something new to me at that time:  A new technique, design, textile, thread, embellishment, etc.
My entries from 1997, 2000, 2003, 2005-2008, and 2011-2018 were selected to travel the country with the Hoffman
Challenge trunk show. Over the years, you may have seen the travelling trunk show at your local quilt guild,  local
quilt show or larger national quilt shows.
I encourage you to try your hand at something new.  Challenge yourself!

Enjoy,
Karen
