    Can I ask a stupid question? What is it that you can win, that is worth so much of your time searching online for bunnies?

    I hate those shops that make the bunny difficult to find. I let them know that it influences whether or not I may buy from them in the future. The rules state that the bunny should be only one or two clicks from the home page.

    Yes, responding to the individual shop does get results.

    Use to enjoy doing the "ShopHop" and did find some shops that I ordered from but, after picking up two nasty virus's that crashed my computer, not once, but twice, it became just too expensive.

    I don't spend my time looking for bunnies. I'm retired and bunnies move too fast for me!!

    Do as I did and call them and tell them you are having a problem and see if they help. Sometimes it is a glitch on there end. Good luck.

    I understand your frustration. I just saw a note on MaryAnne Elizabeth's site that some browsers block you from seeing the bunny; to try using internet explorer or mozilla firefox. I will say that I use Explorer and have not always found the bunnies but I also simply give up! Maybe this will help some people.

    Sorry to hear that - I've shopped at Thousand of Bolts A LOT and have always had great shopping experiences. (I don't work for them in any capacity - just like their choices and prices and service)

    On the home page, right below the bunny it says Register To Win which takes you to the Newsletter signup page and the bunny.

    I tried to Shop Hop online one month only and saw how much time was going to be involved and quit after only about 20 sites. I, too, would rather be quilting or reading QB.

    The Fabshophop rules for shops state that all bunnies must be no more than one click away from the home page, and pretty much all of them are.

    If you can't find a bunny in a very reasonable amount of time, don't hesitate to call or email the shop -- the rules for shops also state that the shop home page should have contact information on it.

    Every month I say I am not going to hop but end up doing it anyway. I was better this month about not wondering off and buying fabric, but that is why these shops participate to get customers.

    It has gotten way big. I always read the rules of how many bunnies are required for the various prize levels. This month for the grand prize you needed to find 140. I did want the block patterns, so it is a double edged sword. I have never won anything though.

    This is my first Shophop. I've found them all except the one at A Notion To Quilt. I have read the directions several times. Do you have to do anything except find them and "submit" them? If I'm reading the directions correctly. you only have to find 140 of them to qualify for the Grand Prize. I've spent too much time at A Notion To Quilt looking for that darn bunny.
