You don't need to be a large manufacturer for this to be a concern. This well intended but poorly written Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act, passed August 14, will affect you even if you are just sewing up one of a kind clothes on your Mom's old Kenmore to sell on e-bay. As a consumer you may not be able to find your favorite natural products for children. This is a complex issue. I'm still really confused but trying to understand.
To understand how this will affect all of us hop on over to Kathleen Fasanella's excellent blog the Fashion-Incubator.
Etsyians will want to follow and participate in this discussion. Let's keep it on the front page!
Most importantly go to National Bankruptcy Day. This is a great activist site with good information on the act and ways to get involved.
