Stay for the CPSIA

Stay, Stay, Stay for the CPSIA (said in a band march, cheer leading sort of way)oh, you could even make little arm motions for the letters....like the village people.

There is a lot of talk still going on and a lot of talk that has been passed around about this new law. It was supposed to be in effect on Feb. 10th. The world of handmade though put up a fight and they have realized what a mess they have made with the new law....so instead of trying to pass a bunch of exclusions and miss some important things they have stayed the law until next year. This should give them enough time to figure out what the heck they are to do with what they have done.


Ravenhill has the best copied little speech about the issue. Go on over and take a peak. it is worded beautifully and right to the point.
This is just a snip it to start you off:
As parents and concerned citizens I’m sure most of us at one time or another have been confronted with the question of lead poisoning. But have you asked yourself what your government is doing to protect your children from lead contained in toys? The answer? They're banning toys, taking books from schools and libraries, hurting low income families, killing entrepreneurial spirit and risking putting the economy in an even greater depression than we've seen in decades. I'd like to introduce you to their solution: the CPSIA.
Do you know about the CPSIA? No? Then I ask you to take a few minutes to find out about it.
The CPSIA stands for Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, a new set of laws that will come into effect on 10 February, 2009 and will impact many, many people in a negative way. Make no mistake, this is very real. View it for yourself. If Forbes, the American Library Association and numerous other media are paying attention, perhaps you should too.

There is hope for our sore little fingers with indents of needles and thread cutting teeth.

So without further adu- Carry on.

Make it your best and enjoy the next year.

It just might be the last we are truly free to

discover, imagine, stitch, design, and

have come to life our finest fantasies.
