One of our very favorite guests, Heidi Profetty (Show 2406), has a great idea for shipping quilts and she's sharing it with us.

She writes,
"I wish I invented and marketed this type of bag to the quilting industry myself, because it's so nicely constructed and works out perfectly for travel with quilts in the airport/hotels. Okay, wait for it....it's a snowboard bag!! 
 
It comes in extra long lengths but just wide and tall enough to carry rolled quilts (especially large ones!) The particular model I purchased is made by Dakine (https://www.dakine.com/en-us/bags/travel-bags/snowboard-gear-bags/low-roller-snowboard-bag/) It comes in lots of colors and patterns and it has awesome easy rolling wheels, lots of convenient handles on the outside, 360 degrees of padding inside, it's durable, easy to pack because the zipper is full length, it's water resistant, packs up tight for storage when not in use, lockable main zipper, it has outside pockets for extra quilty storage stuff and outside slots for identification. It holds quite a few quilts and I think its a real winner if your airport traveling with your quilts or if your lugging all your quilts to a guild to present a trunk show. 
 
I am excited about this find and thought maybe you might like to know about it too!"
