I missed the TV Interview, so this was great to be able to see here.

So does this law also apply to children's clothing?

Thanks for posting this, I missed it too, as I was traveling. I hope this all works out.

I'm glad that this issue was able to be addressed on the news, and that at least one revision has been made. I'm hoping for more! It just seems so silly!! Frustrating, too, that I purchase fabric from a store, simply make it look different by making something out of it, yet I can't sell it because of this law!

I've seriously been contacting all the media outlets for months glad they're finally reporting. It makes me mad that they keep on only saying TOYS though as lots of people understanding it this would affect more than just toys. Even though they showed diaper covers and diaper caddies they kept on using the word toys.

Plus I think it's super important to note how hard it would be for most of us to actually add lead into our products which we make from components that are already tested. DUH.

Sigh. . . I keep hoping something will change! Something that will help us make items for kids but also ensure their safety. . . The truth is, I have no idea whether the fabric I use to make things for my daughter and other kids is safe or not. I'd really love to know! But why not have the fabric manufacturers do the testing and let us know, "This fabric is printed with lead-free ink," etc.

I'm so glad to see my poking and prodding and everyone else's got through! There was also an article in the Standard today I posted it on my blog: monkeybunns.blogspot.com
