    So glad that although they didn't reach their original destination, you got them back. The next time someone tells you that you don't need to insure a package, especially quilts, ignore them. I always insure quilts, even small baby quilts, as I've put a lot of time, material and effort into making them.

    Whew! Thank goodness they arrived. Did the PO tell you what happened to delay them?

    When I went to mail them, the post office clerk asked what was inside (I have never been asked that), I being honest told him, the post office clerk said I was not allowed to insure them because they had no value....being so close to Christmas I mailed them any way since I had never had a problem....what a mistake....I always insure my quilts, I knew better....the box they were in was damaged badly but they still made their way , I would assume the box got caught one of their machines because of the condition of the box.

    This is why I go to UPS to mail my quilts, yes the lady behind the counter always asks and yes she always insures them for me. Now this lady is a friend, and recently asked me for a quilt for the child of one of her employees. It seems her dad is a disabled vet with a quilt of valor that he treasures greatly. His daughter wanted her own quilt as well because of his. I also love how with UPS I can track the package on line and know for sure it is delivered. All my quilts go UPS and two of the children of UPS employees have quilts of their own because of it.

    1. Show up.
    2. Pay attention.

    Happy they showed up, but I have a question. Why were you not allowed to insure them? This makes no sense.

    So glad they were located and not damaged. I bet you were worried silly over them. It is a happy new year for you!

    I am afraid it would have taken me about half a second to explain the value of a quilt to the stupid postal employee. Obviously he/she had never made one nor loved one. I'm glad they finally turned up!

    First off, I would be madder than he** if the clerk said quilts had no value!! And after this experience I would NEVER use the USPS for packages ever again.....Over the holidays I had a USPS issue with a package I sent to Binghamton from Long Island. I paid extra for tracking, but not once did it get scanned - so I was not able to scan it and it arrived 5 days after the projected date they gave me. I was furious!!!

    I have never had a problem with using the USPS, sometimes I will use their tracking system and it worked fine. If I was unable to track a package I would have gone to the Post Office where I mailed it and ask them to track it for me. You pay extra for that service and if I had a post office employee tell me something I wanted to insure had no value, I would ask to speak to a manager and find it in writing. It sounds to me that person should have been reported. You can always do it on line if you don't want to do it in person. Maybe a lot of that employee's packages go missing.
