Hey everyone, great news!! The CPSIA has suspended the requirements for one year! We don’t have to test until then AND they are re working the law. My heart is full of joy right now, not just because of the suspension but also because of the roar that people can cause. We were heard. We were HEARD! Well done everyone. Read here for more information (and note my doll pic in related items – thanks ETSY!)
I would like to especially thank Kathleen Fasanella from Fashion Incubator. She has worked SO hard, making sure that we were heard and keeping us informed and up to date with everything that was going on. I was on her site several times daily, keeping up with what was going on. And, if you are a small business in textiles and you are wanting to ‘take it to the next level’ I highly recommend reading her book ‘The Entrepenuer Guide to Sewn Product Manufacturing’ I’m currently going through it and learning so much.
Totally unrelated note. I’m looking for 5 – 10 volunteers to take a look at a mock up of my website and tell me what you think. I’ve looked at it so much I’m not sure what I’m looking at anymore. I’ve asked my friends and have gotten great feedback – I just need another few sets of eyes to look at. No prize for this, just good karma 🙂
