    I did see some very nice fabrics and kits. Would not have had the chance to see them were it not for the shop hop. I did behave myself and did not buy anything, but it did give me some ideas. Did not finish it all, some shops did a very good job of hiding the bunny with no clues, found those ones I did not bother with at all.

    The ones that don't give clues-I think that's against the rules? They shouldn't participate....Grrrrr.

    I agree, they should give a hint. Some that didn't give hints were so large that it is ridiculous. I was totally turned off. I don't think I would ever buy from them.

    I won a sewing machine a few years ago doing the Fabshophop. It's very legit and fair if I won, I was sure surprised.

    I did the Hop for the first time this month. I get too obsessed with such things. Spent two days searching. I got most of them but there were a few that just hidden too well, and I decided not to go through every single page. I am not expecting to win anything, but it sure would be fun if I did.

    Didn't they "up" the # of needed shops this time too? It seemed like it. I gave up trying to accumulate all the necessary finds after I got all the pattern completed. I've won 2 gift certs. in the past. One I didn't use because it was for some bag store. But, I don't remember needing as many bunnies. Too many this time!

    If I remember right a few years ago, they didn't even give hints. I certainly didn't participate then. I've never found all the bunnies. If I'm not able to find it fairly quickly, I move on to next store.

    Have won some fabric and a gift certificate.

    I have done the shop-hop a couple of times. I even won a GC for $10 but gave it away. I like the stores where they give hints and if they don't, at least it is fairly easy to find the bunny. I don't bother with shops who make it to hard to find it. I really don't want to look at every single page on your site, esp. when there are hundreds.
