    Shop Hop Disappointment

    Was so excited, I finally won something from the online shop hop. Went to the link to redeem the $10 gift certificate and found that it was a place to get bookmarks, luggage tags, etc. paper products with quilt blocks, etc. printed on them. Also had $5.00 shipping. Not what I was hoping for. Would have paid shipping and probably bought extra if it had been fabric. On well, guess there is always next time.

    Hopefully next time you can get a store with fabric. I won a $10 one this time and spent over $50 at the shop.

    I know how you feel. Last time I won $10 to a shop that just sold rulers. I don't need any rulers and they were all expensive so didn't use my prize. Hope we both have better luck next time.

    I got one to a store that had fabric, but it was ALL dull, boring and ugly (to me, anyway), plus $5.95 shipping, so I ended up not using it at all. Another time I ordered a bag of scraps, and was amazed at how little was in it, and how tiny the pieces were, and only one or two I actually liked. On the other hand I've won a couple $10 coupons that took me shopping in places I would not have gone normally, and found several things I'd seen nowhere else, and bought. The fun and mystery of fab-shop-hopping, I guess. I'm still addicted to doing it!

    What a dissapointment. Here you were so excited and then the big let down. Granted $10 is not alot .. but it got your expectations of really winning something! So sorry you got let down like this.

    This is why I quit doing the online shop hops. First of all, it took way too much time - I'd rather be quilting. Secondly, I thought the prizes were rather chintzy. Third, I got a TON of junk email after that. Fortunately I had used a junk email address that is separate from my main address. It's just not worth it.

    I won a $10 gift certificate as well and they didn't have anything that was useful to me. No thread! I am not sure I understand why that site would be on a quilting shop hop.

    I too have won the certificates. Only used one time. I did win a $25.00 pack of fabric. White on white. Usually is all they ever send. Have friend that has won many times & that is all she ever got was the white pack. Another friend on here got a lovely pack of colors. Just never know.

    I won a $10 a few months ago, ordered 2 things, about 12 worth of fabric. One wasn't available. They left a message on the answering machine. Anyway they sent the one item they did have and used the balance of the gift certificate to cover the shipping. So you might check if you can have the gift certificate for shipping too. If you wouldn't use the paper items and luggage tags yourself, couldn't you find items you could use as gifts?
    The shop is probably on the shop hop because it has quilt designed items.

    I signed up for the bunny one,but I don't think I will be doing it, takes waaaaay too much time away from other things I would rather do, and it sounds like the prizes aren't all that exciting anyway........

    I won a gift certificate for $10. also, It was for a shop in Florida that sold purse patterns. I found one I loved but it was $12. I needed to call an 800 # to order -- got hold of the owner & she was SO NICE, she sent the pattern for free!!!

    I've won half a dozen of the 10.00 gift certificates, and redeemed about half of them. Won 2nd prize one time which was 5 yards of fabric, and I got 3 white ones and 2 beige ones. I was really getting them done each month in hopes of winning an accuquilt but that never happened

    Never was interested in doing the online shop hops. Takes too much time away from my quilting and other projects. My time is worth more than the ten bucks.
