As you may know the Sew Fast/Sew Easy company has registered the
phrase "Stitch and Bitch Café", despite the fact that they did not
create or invent the term "Stitch and Bitch". They are systematically
attacking and harassing many community based groups calling themselves
"Stitch and Bitch" or any variation of "Stitch and Bitch". Most
recently the Boston Stitch and Bitch yahoo group was ordered to remove
their long time logo because it contained the phrase.
Enough is enough. The craft and knitting community should not stand
for this. As we all know Stitch and Bitch was in the title of two
popular Debbie Stoller knitting books and has been used as a phrase
for decades. It is time to show Sew Fast/Sew Easy that being
anti-community does not pay. Join in the protest and boycott of this
company, find other, more pro-community places to purchase yarn and
supplies and take classes and e-mail them to tell them how you feel at
. Let's jam there inbox with out protests!
