    Have any of you participated in a Fabshophop? Did you enjoy all the shops? Did you spend a LOT of time "shopping"? Would you do it again? Did you actually win prizes?

    I do it almost every month. Some of the shops I just breeze through, sometimes I spend some time, sometimes I bookmark for later. Just placed an order at one last night LOL. I've won twice, just the gift certificates not the big prizes. But hey $20 would of fabric for the cost of shipping is nothing to sneeze at!

    I usually participate every time it is offered. I do enjoy it and I am driven to find every bunny. I did win a small gift (2 FQs) from one of the shops.

    I have won $10 gift certificates and I have won 4 one yard cuts of fabric. It's fun to see what each shop has to offer.

    Congrats of each of you for winning gift! I tried it several years ago, won nothing, and thought that I had spent way too much time on the computer. But I'm thinking I might try again in July, in fact I registered a few minutes ago. Wish me luck and maybe we"ll "bump" into each other while we're hopping from site to site.

    You don't win everytime. Just keep playing.

    I win a $20 gift certificate from time to time. I found my fave shops that way several years ago. I also collected all the basket patterns a few months ago.

    been doing the hops for over 10 years now- i do not (shop)at all of the shops- there are over 150 of them-some hops have had over 180.
    i do look at the shops- i have found a few that i love and do shop with- i know where to look when i am looking for something in particular- there is such a vast assortment of products offered all across the country- for a vast assortment of prices too.
    i have won prizes participating- not with every hop- but often enough= i've won 1/2 yard collections of fabrics (30 fabrics) i've won many gift certificates from any where from $10 up to $75
    it's one of those computer things i just do---about 10 months a year- for 10+ years now...as long as it continues i will continue-
    i consider it a great resource- and fun too- the prizes are just a bonus.

    I have done the past three and so far have won a $10 and a $20 gift certificate. I enjoy the challenge of looking but winning makes it nicer.

    It is an online shop hop. You visit the online stores and click on the bunny. Each month they have a quilt pattern you can find and prizes too.

    I've done the fabshophop a few times, but it's just too many hops for me. I always feel compelled to find all of them, because I'd hate to lose out on the grand prize just because of one or two bunnies!

    I used to do another one that had a worm, I think. It had less shops and was fun (I actually won something there), but it stopped.

    There is also this one:

    http://anilee.net:8080/anilee/index.jsp

    and this one:

    http://www.quiltdash.com/members.php?page=dashboard

    Both of these are fairly small, and so for me are manageable.

    I learned a lot about fabric styles by searching the sites, and I found a lot of pattern designers I liked. It was educational and enjoyable, but the thrill has passed, I guess!
