    Quilt gone missing ...

    Mailed to a friend across the state and she still doesn't have it.



    Not expecting it to show, but know that knowing this group will sympathize.

    How awful for you. I hate to ship things for that very reason. Here they drop it on the porch and sometimes don't even ring the bell. Anyone passing by can see it and walk away with it. That is how one of my grandsons first birthday packages ended up. I hope you find your quilt.

    Did you put ins and a tracking number on it. That's the only way I would ever send anything. At least you can recoup your money if it can't be found.

    i hope you insured it and put delivery confirmation on it! you should be able to track it down.
    i send quilts all over the country- and have been lucky- but i have always insisted on the added expense of insurance- it is well worth a couple extra bucks to be able to track it.

    Contact the postal office there they probably have it and can't find it, I think a person on here had the same problem and it took a few months for them to find her quilt, don't give up, be persistent with the post office. Track it to the last post office that handled the package and go from there. i hope you find it, it is a very pretty quilt.

    When did you mail it? Did you put a return address label on it?

    After the post office lost a box of books that I was sending to my daughter and it taking 11 months to get them to pay the insurance claim (even though they sent me a notice w/my shipping label that they were lost) I won't send packages with them anymore. Their tracking system didn't work as it only showed my package living the post office it was sent from and then just dropped off the face of the earth. At least UPS and FedEx have tracking systems that seem to work. I'm really sorry for your quilt and hope that it turns up.

    I feel your pain and will pray that the quilt arrives to its designation soon! I've noticed that even with just regular mail it is so slow these days. Hopefully this is the case with this beautiful quilt!!

    Hopefully you put Delivery confirmation or Insurance on it so it can be tracked. The post office can track it more completely than you can online. If there is no tracking or it isn't helpful, then ask them to send an inquiry to the MRC (mail recovery center). They have to do it for you. You will need to give them as much information as you can about the item. They can even attach a photo of it to the inquiry. If they give you a hard time about filing the inquiry, tell them you know a postmaster (me!) and that is what she told you to do.

    A friend of mine sent a quilt to her grandson across the country and it didn't show up for 6 weeks, and they all thought it was lost, but it DID finally arrive at its destination!!

    That is heart breaking for you. A lovely quilt. Good to post it here as you never know. Someone may come across it.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I had delivery confirmation but my quilt sent to Momence, IL went to Hawaii. Never for got that missing. I went into the main office customer service....they pretended to call Hawaii, am sure the empty box was sent after the gift was removed! but I cannot prove it. It was tracked....many times during its journey. no recourse.
    Now I insure all packages, and use signature confirmation. I also send an e-mail or phone to make sure the package is expected.
