    FabShopHop - Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi Everyone. This is the first FabShopHop I've ever done. Have been success except for Hamel's Fabrics. I have clicked on everything on their website outside of checking out each and every fabric. Spent more than an hour on it and cannot find the bunny. Is it right in front of me, or is anyone else experiencing the same frustration?

    Lol on Hamel's site, right underneath the big pink fab shop button there is a hyperlink that you need to click on, it will take you to the registration page for the newsletter.

    I am stuck on about 5 other ones.

    SouthP are you going to the Top Shop Hop or the Thruway Shop Hop? I just had my 2nd surgery in 7 weeks - am aiming for both, hopefully, I will be able to go if my friend drives.

    There's a link in between the two month's bunnies on their home page. The link will take you to the newsletter registration page. If you want to take a shortcut, click here: http://www.hamelsfabrics.com/newsletter.asp

    No EmbQuilt, am skipping both hops. My plastic melted down completely this month! Thank you for your help. If you can't sew, you can always shop!

    I've been doing the hops for a couple of years now and may I give you some advice? When I spend a lot of time in one shop and can't find the bunny, I leave that one until the end and go back to it. Sometimes the shops don't get those bunnies posted on the first of the month. I've also found that if I absolutely can't find the bunny, a nice note to the shop asking for help also works. (I usually "mention" that I'm not likely to shop with them because I find their website too hard to find things- works every time!)

    You only have to find 130 so usually the shops that don't have hints, I don't need to find the bunny there anyway. I won the grand prize of a new sewing machine some years ago from this hop. It's legit!
    Got fabric?

    If there is no hint, the first place I check is the newsletter sign-up and it is frequently there.
