There is a big thread on the general debate board, but I thought I'd link it here since I know some of you make/sell items for children (myself included).
New law going into effect Feb 10th that requires anything sold for use by children be tested for lead. Sounds wonderful until you read everything that it entails.
Here's the link:
I am in the process of researching whether this will affect my products since I don't have any plastic or metal in my eye patches and they are made entirely of cloth (though I don't know if the appliques I use are considered entirely cloth since it has the glue agent on the back).
But there are links to petitions on this thread and there are also groups you can join on facebook, etc. I would ask anyone who would ever buy anything second-hand or from a small business for your child to help get this amended so that many businesses don't have to shut down. Thanks!
