In 2017, Loree Tannett a member of OOTB, had her piece 'Hope Springs Eternal' accepted into the Hoffman Challenge. It will travel for 1 year, (until September 2018) and can be found not the website in Home Décor Trunk A. It is # 294.

    Details of the piece:
  • Hoffman Full - Hope Springs Eternal
    Size: 20.5" x 22.5"
  • Materials and Techniques: Hoffman fabrics, dyed cheesecloth, embroidery thread, NeocolourII water soluble pastels. Machine quilting, applique, hand embroidery, fabric painting.
  • Artist's Statement: I live in a rural area of Eastern Ontario. I listen to the farmers talk about the harshness and difficulty of farming here. They look across the desolate fields after wind, fire or flood and hope for a good next year. Then March comes and the first plant appears and off they go. They put "another season's promise in the ground" (Stan Rogers: Field behind the Plow). 'Hope Springs Eternal' is from a poem by Alexander Pope (Essay on Man)
