Good Morning:

First, we have a journalist from the Columbus (OH) Dispatch looking for local business owners/crafters that can comment on how the CPSIA would affect events like craft fairs and community festivals where many booths sell handmade items for children. Please let me know if you are from that area and want to speak with her.

Sincerely,

Rob Wilson

Highly influential national newpaper reporter in Washington DC wants to interview cpsia affected children's wear manufacturers, retailers etc, location not important. Preference will be given to parties I know to be articulate, versed in CPSIA, and not given to China conspiracy theories, big vs small, "crafter" vs "big business" or any positions that can't pass the credibility test of intellectual rigor. High profile contact.

email me ASAP kfasanellaATyahooDOTcom

Due to the high volume of responses, if you do not include your name, phone, address (include url if you have one), I won't pass it along. Also, I cannot respond to all but I'll have it. Thanks for understanding.

I've been contacted by a reporter for a major NJ newspaper who is looking for New Jersey business owners who will be affected by the impending CPSIA regulations. If you are willing to be interviewed, please contact me via the contact form on my website, and I'll tell you how to get in touch with the reporter.

Reporter from the Wall Street Journal wants to interview manufacturers who went out of business due to cpsia.

Email me directly at kathleen@fashion-incubator.com and include the following information or I won't pass it along.
name
business name
phone/cell
city/state
url if you have one

In addition, please write a paragraph or so (be succinct) with your story of how this law has put you out of business.

The reporter already has the cost of testing angle covered so you don't need to do anything other than mention it but not flog it. He's interested in the reasons for driving you out of business. Imo, it seems he is particularly interested in the issue of inventory and whether your stores have returned product to you and if so, what is the value or cost of it to you. He's also looking for a personal touch here, something readers can connect with.

Repeating, I will not forward your response if you don't include the above information.
