Due to insurance requirements, the quilt owner and the depot person must inspect each quilt together at the time the quilt is delivered to the depot. Depots may have some small-ish cloth bags in which to package quilts for transport to and from the show. Large quilts will not fit inside these bags. You may choose to package your quilt in an old pillowcase with your name and phone number clearly marked in black permanent ink; this pillowcase will be returned to you. Otherwise, depots will use large, clean plastic bags to package and transport quilts.
