    I do the FabShopHop every other month so that my DH won't get mad at me for being on the computer so long each day. I remember someone's comment about how long it took to hear that she had won a prize & another lady was going to be charged for the shipping of her prize. I received notice that I had won a small $25 item from the April Hop. I won 4 yards of different white on white & beige on white fabric & I wasn't asked to pay for the shipping which made me very happy. I was so pleased because I didn't have anything like that in my stash. Now I'll be playing those FabShopHops more often because if nothing else, they have nice downloadable patterns for quilts. And I have found some fantastic on-line quilt shops that I would never have known about had I not entered the shop hop, or heard about them from the ladies on this board.

    I won one of the two grand prize one year doing the Fabshop Hop. It was a Brother pq 1500s quilting machine. I didn't have to pay shipping or taxes. It was delivered to my front door. Many shops that give gift certificates won't use the certificates to include shipping. That is up to the shop.

    I think all you have to do is go to fabshophop.com and the details are there. Atleast i think that is all you have to do.

    This reply was to go to BellaBoo. I don't do very many posts on the message board so please pardon my goofs. Talk about being lucky! I'd probably faint or maybe wet myself if I was ever lucky enough to win such a grand prize. I'll definately keep doing the shop hop now that I know people actually do win the big prizes. Congratulations, belatedly, for your good luck.

    Sharon B: I got an email notifying me that I had won something and sent me to the page listing all the winners for that Hop. I received my package 7 or 8 days later.

    I just finished the June one last night with minutes to spare. I noticed some of the on-line stores had already removed the June bunny. Grrr! I won a $10 gift certificate last year, but I never saw the e-mail - just my name on the list, so when I contacted the store, they said that unless I could find the e-mail, they couldn't honor it. Oh well.

    I wonder if once you win a prize - are you eligible to win again?

    I didn't know I won until I saw my name as one of two grand prize winners on the webpage. I got a phone call about three days later asking me where to send the machine. The machine arrived about a week later directly from Brother. This was about four years ago. I've won many $5 and $10 off store coupons. The shops that won't have the coupon number entered in the store check out computer when I try to use it, is one store that I will never order from. It's too simple to honor the coupon with out a hassle. If the shop can't handle that then they can't handle my order.
