Press Release: Announcing HTA Blog Week 2010

Stamford, CT – June 20, 2010 – The week of June 21st will be the first annual Handmade Toy Alliance (HTA) Blog week. Journalists and bloggers from across the country will come together during the third week in June to celebrate hand crafted children’s goods. Throughout the week, writers will share news about the HTA and their mission to amend the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), while showcasing some of the unique products offered by the diverse and creative members of the Alliance.

This is an opportunity to not only promote the amazing products our members make and sell, but also a chance to again highlight the need to amend the CPSIA before these businesses are forced to close their doors due to an inability to prove compliance under the law,” stated Jolie Fay (Skipping Hippos, OR).

We’ve developed some great relationships with well followed bloggers over the last eighteen months, who have worked with us to help save handmade,” Cecilia Leibovitz, HTA President added (Craftsbury Kids, VT). “The outpouring of support for our cause was shown again by the number of bloggers that wanted to participate in our first blog week.”

Participating blogs include:

We'll be updating our twitter feed and facebook page as posts from each blog appear. Keep in touch and learn more about the human costs of the CPSIA.
