    I thought maybe some of you donít know about the Mall Crawl or the Bunny Hop. They are two different contest but you basically do the same thing. The sites provide a list of sites and you go to each site and either find the bunny or a square. Prizes depend on how many bunny or squares you get and so on. This is my first time doing the Mall Crawl, but the Hop is my forth. All three first times doing the hop I won a ten dollar gift certificate to one of the sites. So that is just to let you know the odds are good, and at least if you visit one shop (it use to be one shop I think it still is) you get a free pattern. I love free! :D Okay here are the sites. Have Fun. http://www.quiltindex.com/Index.aspx http://www.fabshophop.com/ :)

    i locked my wallet away before i started, but my list of "gotta got back when i get paid" is growing. :shock:

    here's one with lots of regular prices under $5 per yard for name brands. i've seen some of the same fabrics at other sites for over $9 per yard! :P

    Got it....It helps if I look for the bunny and not spend my time shopping and creating a wish list!! DUH!!

    Has anyone found the bunny at site 111? I've been all over the quilting kitty and can't find it anywhere!

    Site 111 the clue is the bunny likes to stay in touch. Look at the various ways the shop can communicate with you.

    Cool...thanks. I couldn't find the darn thing anywhere. I think 50 is enough for today. I should go back to my pattern seeking now.

    oh, wow. Maybe I shouldn't go to the sites. Sounds like they are addictive! This site (QB) gets all my internet time, except for a little eBay time and sometimes I even check my e-mail....

    Yeah, tell me those quilt shops aren't making big bucks during these hops! I've been suckered in more than once! Of course, I'm a sucker for fabric anyway! :D And I still haven't won a sewing machine. Oh well, I'll keep trying! LOL!

    DonnaRae, I don't know if I should hug you, or kick you in the butt. I'm already through 3/4 of the hop, have bookmarked 10 sites and have a wishlist a mile long. Of course, only 1 thing on the list is for me, the rest as gifts for fabric to make stuff with and give away.

    I'M HOOKED!!!

    i found all but three on my own. kathy found 2 for me - hiding in plain sight! she's a better friend than a whole pot of coffee. :P

    #61 i kickin' my butt, though. i wouldn't be suprised if i've passed it on one or more of my 13, 476 trips through every nook and cranny.

    can anybody give me a hint? :?

    Well! That was [not] "fast, fun and easy"! but i FINALLY found it. :roll:

    I have found all but 2. Allentown Sewing says that their hint is in the newsletter. I read all 4 pages and couldn't find the hint. Went all over the website....need help with that one.

    Also, Craft Town Fabrics can't find that one either. I can't find either despite many trips to both stores. I'm trumped.

    I couldn't find the Fabric Attic at all on the shophop site. Perhaps this one is just for the Mall Crawl??

    That site was horrible!!! Took me forever to find that stupid block! (I guess I should be fair, though, and point out that one of the reasons it was so hard is that they have soooooooooooooooooo much there to look through. :lol: )

    Hint: What to stores do when they want to sell off their stock? And what comes after 2?

    The Bunny in Allentown isn't IN the Newsletter. He hops around the information ABOUT the newsletter.

    If you want to Crawl around in Craft Town til you find that worm, look for what you'd buy if you wanted everything you need to make something to come in one complete package.

    Now ... i'd be very grateful if somebody would please give me some hints to help find that Mall Crawl worm at
    Bear Paw Quilts
    Quilters Woodwork
    Kwilts 'N Koa
    I'll bet it's hiding in plain sight, but i finally gave up. :lol:

    Ok....I think I qualify for the Biggest Dork Award. I scoured 4 pages of newsletter 5 times to find the stupid bunny at Allentown....only to find out I didn't scroll down far enough on the main newsletter page. RRRGGGGG!!!

    I found the block for craft town, but I couldn't find the elusive bunny. I'm not doing the crawl....just the hop. I start in baby steps.

    The bunny is in The Hamptons. Use the drop down menu to find the collection.

    Thanks Patrice! I made it too difficult. That's why I'm not good at riddles either.

    i had all the bunnies in the hutch before i started hunting worms.

    now i'm just 3 worms short of a full bait bucket.

    for some reason, i just had to find all the hoppers. consumed an absurd amount of time and energy. but i think i'll sleep well enough in spite of those 3 fugitive squirmers.

    thanks, just the same. :P

    Patrice...perhaps if you offered Tim's toe as bait, the squirmers would come and find you? :twisted:
