That is good news for those of us who make childrens things.

RE: Great news about lead testing

I can understand the need to protect children, but it seems like crafters should be able to make a list of ingredients in their crafts. It could be available at fairs for parents to look at with copies to take away if anyone wanted. It would be a pain to make the list, but one list could do for all their chlildrens crafts with a disclaimer that each craft doesn't contain all items. It seems like something is going to happen since this is just for a year.
