    I've been enjoying the IRRs and the pictures of the ongoing tops! I thought I'd pass along a tip I heard years ago that I use when mailing any boxed packages. Put your address, or the recepient's address, on a piece of paper somewhere inside the package. In case the address label on the box gets destroyed in handling, this would give the PO no excuse to toss it out as undeliverable.

    I never know if this helps or not, but it is something simple that might prevent losing a wonderful quilt top.

    Your IRRs and Dear Jane's and swaps are wonderful to watch from afar. Maybe some month I'll jump in. :wink:

    What a great idea. I never would have thought of that.

    Yes, a good idea is to print address on a 3x5 card and pin it to the item.
    I also put any items that are fabric in a zip-lock type bag, or in a plastic bag taped shut, to protect it.
