Just ran across this:

The CPSIA issue was also the cover story in the Santa Maria Sun:

"A broadly written law requiring lead and phthalate testing on all children’s products is set to go into effect on Feb. 10. The text of the law has prompted much confusion and threatens the livelihood of mom-and-pop shops. The law, meant to regulate large manufacturers that outsource overseas, also applies to the little guy. Some crafters and small-scale manufacturers are particularly hurt by the wording and possible enforcement, because many such home-based business owners pride themselves on using all-natural, child-safe materials."

Is anybody aware of a law going into effect about lead in the crafts for items for children? It has been in the news and it states that items have to be tested to make sure they are lead free. The news said that it will effect crafters as well as resale shops. I make jewelry and am confused by this. If anybody knows anythig about this...please respond.
Thanks :)
