There is a list of proposed tariffs that may be implemented which would affect the prices of things we purchase. The pre-written letter spells out exactly what PUC codes are included. These are all items imported from Europe. I know that angelina fiber is exclusively from Europe. There is a choice to sign the petition or send letters. Please sign if you are so inclined and get ready for the mid terms. madeinamericatax.com/
I got this notice as well. BUT...looking at the other side of this problem. I have said for years that I would pay more for things if they were made here which would create more jobs. And that stands true for all countries. We need to produce more of our own stuff. At one time, New England had some of the finest fabric mills. And we produced very good sewing needles and yarns...etc. Those jobs are all gone and mostly to China. Do we really need all of this plastic junk which fills our homes and our front lawns? Do we really need apple juice from China or Oreos from Mexico. Life is all about choices. I don't mean to stir up a hornets nest. Sorry if I offended anyone. Just one old lady's opinion.
You did not offend me, I agree with you. We can only hope it will bring jobs back home with better quality.
You have made some very good points. I too am willing to pay extra for items made in our country. (Actually, I already do.) The progress we have made is working toward more jobs here, not other places.
yes. ....the sad part is this will affect not just crafters. It is going to make all things more expensive, as if life isn't expensive enough as it is!
Yes...I got one...it makes sense with the new tariff laws. Unfortunately, these will not be the only things impacted...I would go directly to the JoAnn site rather than clicking on the link in the e-mail if there is any doubt about it's legitimacy...
it has been in our news broadcasts in Aus., for a few months, all of your chinese imports will be more expensive,
I am not aware of this.
