I'm sure many of us are already in a lather about this. I know I am. Just in case you haven't heard, the CPSIA is introducing stringent new laws for lead testing children's products...even things which obviously contain no lead, such as fabric. And, interestingly enough, it has turned the plush art and crafting communities into political battlegrounds.
Here's a really good article on it from the Etsy Storque, for those of you who haven't seen it yet. http://www.etsy.com/storque/craftivism/cpsia-updates-and-calls-to-action-3157/ It has lots of good links to more information.
If you have something to say about this, hop to it! The deadline for comments to the CPSC is JANUARY 5th. You know, tomorrow. Here is the link to the CPSC forms.
Any additional links/helpful comments will be greatly appreciated, I'm sure!
