there has been alot of topics this summer about quilters wanting to sell their quilts-
and do i label my quilt?
well= there are laws that say---if you are going to sell ANY HAND CRAFTED TEXTILE ITEM it must contain a label- and their are certain things that must be included on that label--
US Labeling Laws You Need to Know About When Selling Your Handcrafted Apparel Items
You've probably noticed labels on clothing you have purchased but may not have realized that an individual crafter is required by US government regulations to attach the same types of labels to handmade apparel items made by the crafter (which are for sale), the same as any large clothing manufacturer is required to do.
you need to visit the United States FTC (fair trade commission) and read the requirements- always protect yourself- their are fees- (reprocussions) for not following the rules---you might think well- no one will never really know---but you never know---and is it worth getting fined for??? it is a simple matter to attach a label to your crafts---
the label HAS TO INCLUDE FIBER CONTENT: if you use poly batting and cotton top/bottom the label needs to say so
it also HAS TO INCLUDE CARE INSTRUCTIONS...
these are required by law on any textile item made and sold in the U.S. (other contries have other laws-if you are outside the U.S. you should check on your requirements---they are world wide) they also apply to knitted/crocheted items---any textile item made and sold.
so if you are trying to make a little money- protect yourself- check the rules- it does not cost anything to put a label on your item- it may cost you ALOT to skip that set.
