Hi, I took the purple patterned Val bag, that I bought at the quilt show in Wisconsin several months ago, on vacation. I just loved it for air travel. Plenty of room and I really found the compartments convenient.
I was a little nervous to take a cloth bag but it was so sturdy, and the color made it keep from looking grimey. I even spilled on the outside and it cleaned right up and dried quickly.
It won’t be my only Val bag.
