Not to worry! Several concerned stores have called us because of an email sent out by an organization in our industry. Contrary to that email, the new rulings on lead will have little effect on your needlework store and how you operate your business. We have posted information for stores on our Needlework Retailer web site.
The Guide to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) for Small Businesses, Resellers, Crafters and Charities from the CPSC web site does an excellent job of explaining how the new rules apply to small businesses.
Basically, the items you sell in your needlework store are exempt.
