    I wrote to all the people in the below link. I have always wanted to offer knit baby blankets but this would prevent me from providing this service. How very sad!

    I’ve already started taking some items off of my website; haven;t touched my Etsy shop yet. The irony is that I started my own business because I was tired of the lack of products made in America for my own children, frustrated that nothing was handmade.

    Now the federal government is determined to ensure that I can only access junk made in sweatshops.

    Thank you for sharing your excellent writing. I’m sure it’s tough not to get emotional over this. Your work is beautiful.
