I don't know where to post this, but if it's in the wrong place please move it. I just found this out by a friend of mine and it will affect us as crafters and sellers for the ability to sell our prducts. The CPSIA is trying tying to pass an Act/Law to have everything tested like thread, buttons, ribbon, fabrics, padding, ect for lead. They are purposing that the business' expence. If passed Feb 10, 2009 will be law nation wide. If caught it's 100,000 dollar fine per item.
here is the links onewith a patiton to sign if intrested in stopping it.

Also more about it in you tube. It's designed for children 0-12 years old. I hope for our sake as crafters and WHAMS we will be spared.
