I believe this would effect ALL Handmade items, not just for 12 and under wouldn't it?

Yes it would, and some fabric manufacturers, from what I've read. At least it's not a law yet.

Your government is definately mad, I don't understand it, there's a big global economic crisis, or that's what they told us, but want to let thousands people without a job? Sometimes I feel happy to live in Spain, this kind of banana republic country :D

why would they care? they have jobs with benefits and they don't understand what business is about.
