I hope everyone is familiar with the CPSIA (Comsumer Product Safety Improvement Act).
It was discussed in an Etsy thread today. I dont think there is enough coverage or concern about this in the media. I really dont know why, this is a very serious issue that affect many people. Even if you dont make toys or children's clothes, I think you will find that it will affect your life all the same. I think everyone on Etsy should do something to speak out by contacting congress or the like. Please read the thread and join us if you like in making a quilt. I'm not really a quilter but I have successfully completed one quilt. you can see it in the archives of this blog. I think I can manage one 10 x 10 block. What I would like to see with this quilt is flickr exposure, Utube video and major media contact. Oprah, Martha Stewart, Ellen etc..If you have something unusual like a huge quilt and large group of zealous artists and crafters it should be topical enough to gain interest in some media venue. Also join in on Wednesday for a blog event seen here. OK I just sent a little note to Oprah . Why don't you do the same?
