    I did see some very nice fabrics and kits. Would not have had the chance to see them were it not for the shop hop. I did behave myself and did not buy anything, but it did give me some ideas. Did not finish it all, some shops did a very good job of hiding the bunny with no clues, found those ones I did not bother with at all.

    The ones that don't give clues-I think that's against the rules? They shouldn't participate....Grrrrr.

    I agree, they should give a hint. Some that didn't give hints were so large that it is ridiculous. I was totally turned off. I don't think I would ever buy from them.

    I won a sewing machine a few years ago doing the Fabshophop. It's very legit and fair if I won, I was sure surprised.

    I did the Hop for the first time this month. I get too obsessed with such things. Spent two days searching. I got most of them but there were a few that just hidden too well, and I decided not to go through every single page. I am not expecting to win anything, but it sure would be fun if I did.

    Didn't they "up" the # of needed shops this time too? It seemed like it. I gave up trying to accumulate all the necessary finds after I got all the pattern completed. I've won 2 gift certs. in the past. One I didn't use because it was for some bag store. But, I don't remember needing as many bunnies. Too many this time!

    If I remember right a few years ago, they didn't even give hints. I certainly didn't participate then. I've never found all the bunnies. If I'm not able to find it fairly quickly, I move on to next store.

    Have won some fabric and a gift certificate.

    I have done the shop-hop a couple of times. I even won a GC for $10 but gave it away. I like the stores where they give hints and if they don't, at least it is fairly easy to find the bunny. I don't bother with shops who make it to hard to find it. I really don't want to look at every single page on your site, esp. when there are hundreds.

    According to the shop hop site:

    Miscellaneous Q. I can't find the 'youfoundit' bunny?
    A. The shops have been asked to locate the 'youfoundit' bunny two clicks from the front page -- but where you start your search among the menu items on each website also affects how many clicks it will take you to find the right page.

    They have also been asked to give hints on the front page on each site and respond to email questions with hints if needed.

    During a FabShop Hop there are thousands hoppers hopping and shopping. You can imagine how daunting it is to try to respond to hundreds of emails daily. Please do your best to locate the 'youfoundit' bunny before asking.

    Remember, we want you to look around these sites and you have a whole month.
