I’m Legal!

**maybe. This lay is law is so – I’m sorry- asinine that, I’m not sure what is happening! There is way too much contradictory information out there, I’ll keep you all posted! ** Jan 14th

Today the CPSIA met to vote on an amendment which exclude wool and cotton from their law . I’m all wool and cotton so it looks like it will be legal for me toΒ  sell my dolls to my American customers. I’m not a bio-hazard! There are still a few points around this that need to be cleared up but so far so good. I have to stop reading the Etsy forums on this – there are a LOT of people really freaking out on there. It’s kind of like Y2K for crafters.

Although this is a great step forward, there are still many, many people who will be affected by this law. Please sign the petitions, write to your congresspeople – this is a great ‘one stop’ place to get all the information regarding this law and how it affects everyone.

Peace out.

    The analogy of Y2K for crafters is funny… if it weren’t so true. Hopefully, this legislation will disappear without much fuss, the same way Y2K did.

    Still, I’m glad you aren’t under the gun, so to speak!

    Yea! Thats great news lets hope they can agree on letting other crafters be legal also, then it would be a banner of a day.

    Seriously though, this is excellent news! Everyone really should keep pressing their lawmakers for more amendments such as this one!

    I try to stay away from the forums too. Too many people are doom and gloom. I am choosing to remain positive and am still “assembling” my bunnies. (There was one positive post from someone who met with some big muckity mucks and they said she wasn’t a manufacturer. She was an assembler. I’m a proud toy assembler. LOL)

    Good news for Bamboletta though. I’m full steam ahead in my shop too. I’m all for a little civil disobedience for a good cause.

    glad you will be exempt. Even though I am in the UK, I have found this law to be very upsetting. I hope it will be overturned.

    I think the reason people are freaking out is because their livelihoods are at stake. Meaning, it is completely worth freaking out about. Don’t you think?
