NEW CONSUMER PROTECTION RULES GO INTO EFFECT FEBRUARY 10, 2009! The way the Consumer Protection Safety Improvement Act is written will force many of the shops here on Etsy to close. I have some info and links on my blog about it, also there is a whole forum section dedicated to it. Here's the URL:

Everyone who cares about keeping quality handmade goods available for purchase in the US should contact everyone they can about this issue. We all want what's best for the children but this legislation takes things too far.

UPDATE: The CPSC has announced a stay of enforcement of CPSIA for one year, until February 2010. While this is great news there is still a lot of work to be done. We all need to continue talking to everyone we can about this issue, the public is woefully uninformed and the media and many in Congress have yet to take this issue seriously.

Concerned about lead in children's products, specifically textiles? Read this:

http://www.cpsc.gov/BUSINFO/Poole.pdf

From page 7 of the above link:

Current Situation

No lead added to yarns or fabrics
by U.S. Textile Industry

Testing of incoming fibers and fabrics
reveal none or only trace levels

Even if trace amounts of lead existed, very little or none would remain on finished fabrics because:

Low application levels

Washed out during processing
----------
I am confident that all my products are perfectly safe and hopeful that the mess that is CPSIA will be repealed or significantly amended soon. Here is a link to a letter to the CPSC from other organizations with similar information:

http://www.nationaltextile.org/library/cpsc/2008_12_31.doc

And another with more recent information, including testing results showing that Coats & Clark yarns (which I use for most of my projects) contain less than 6 ppm of lead, about 1% of the current limit.
