    I just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to do this. I have managed to register for the hop twice, but nothing else happens. I go to the shop website, click on the bunny, and I get sent back to the original registration page over and over, but if I do anything there, it just re-registers me for the hop. What am I doing wrong? I'm beginning to think I have fallen for someone's ugly joke! Can anyone explain this, so a moron like me, 'gets' it? :oops:

    lol... usually near the ShopHop icon that you see on the main page of a site is a Clue or Hint. e.g., "the bunny likes kits," or, "the bunny wants new fabric." Using the Hint, you look at the menu for the site and click on Kits (or new arrivals). look around that page and you'll find another bunny that says, "You Found It!" click on That bunny and you will be taken to the shophop page. You will see your email in a field with a clickable button that says register for prize (or something like that). Click it!!! You will then be taken to a screen that gives you a choice of returning to the quilt shop site, or returning to the list of quilt shops.

    Every so often you will be given a pdf pattern for a quilt block that you can download. There are five of them, although I also saw someone post here that there are six, so I may not have done it long enough.

    have fun!

    You need to go to the list of shops

    http://www.fabshophop.com/listofshops.asp

    and find your starting location. They like you to start with the initial of your last name. Click on one of the shops and it will take you to their site. Somewhere (on most sites but not all) you'll find a hint as to where the bunny is. Some don't provide a hint and you just have to browse the site.

    The bunny you need to click on it will say You Found It. That will take you to a page where you fill in your email address to submit it to show you've found the bunny. You will get an email as well. You can also log in to the site to see which shops you have been to as well as those you still need to go to.

    I think there has only been a month or two when I have not found them all but some are more difficult to find than others.

    I think you are clicking on the wrong bunny - after you get to the page with directions click on list of shops
    Click one shop's name - it should take you to a home page.

    on the home page there is a clue - sometimes it's near the bunny icon sometimes it's in the text above. You will end up going into the site using the clue
    i.e. the bunny likes kits - go to online catalogue & click on kits
    then you should find a smaller bunny icon
    Click on this one - it usually says 'you found it' - this will take you to a page which you submit & go back to list to find another.
    Hope this helps.

    All shops participating in the hop will have a bunny on the home page. Wrong bunny.

    I did the same thing the day the shop hop started. Then realized that you have to go into their shops. A lot of the shops give you clues, some don't. Some of the "you found me" bunny's are in the newsletters for that company as well. Some make it very easy, and some, I spent way to much time trying to find so just forgot about that company. Once you get one, you'll understand what's going on. Just don't click on the bunny unless it says "You found me" the other one takes you back to the beginning. Make any sense.

    Thank you everyone! I guess this 'old dog' learned a new trick! Is there anything you can't learn here? :thumbup:
