Embroider Buddy – Let’s Talk Toy Safety

Our new range of Embroider Buddies have been a huge hit with hobbyists and small business owners alike. They are cute, easy to embroider, and kids love them.

Embroider-Buddy-Heading

We’ve had customers ask a couple of great questions:

  • Are the EBs safe for babies and small children?
  • And are business owners liable for the safety of products they sell?

The short answer to both questions is “yes”. The long answer gives us a chance to cover the important topic of toy safety. Stuffed toys might seem harmless, but can be deadly.

Toy Safety

In the United States (where much better statistics are kept than in Australia), over 190,000 children are injured by toys every year and sadly some cases end in fatalities (CPSC, 2013). To protect children worldwide, a number of design and manufacturing standards have been created. The most important standard for stuffed toys has the catchy name of ISO8124.

Hemingworth Spool and Cap System

Hemingworth is a new force in the World of Embroidery 1001-700x700… Combining Old World Craftsmanship with New Age Technology.

Hemingworth was founded on the belief that quality and craftsman-ship should be enhanced through technology. For decades, embroiderers have faced challenges with their embroidery thread, mostly due to the thread spool itself. Relatively unchanged for over a century, the traditional thread spool could not keep up with faster embroidery machines and new thread capabilities.

Recognizing the need for change, the Hemingworth team designed a new thread spool to eliminate these problems and facilitate more efficient embroidery. A Hemingworth spool is designed to be both a smooth thread guide and a protective storage solution. But a new spool itself is not enough. For exceptional embroidery, exceptional thread must also be used.
