    I'm getting ready to send my first quilt to a LA. What would you suggest is the best way to mail it? Insured? Delivery Confirmation? How should I package it?

    TIA

    I would use UPS - first $100 of insurance is free, tracking is free.

    Should I use their packaging? Or my own?

    Always insure and have delivery confirmation. The plastic bag is a very good idea.

    it is also suggested you indicate it is "textiles" and not quilt. the word quilt is a flag for thieves.
