Since this company decided to lay claim to the creation of this phrase, (1997) they have shut down people's on-line groups and are currently harrassing (threatening lawsuits against) groups of people who are using this to advertise their knitting/crocheting/sewing/quilting/cross stitch group meetings and events. Keep in mind that these are people just like you and I. They aren't using the term to sell anything or to raise money for themselves or others. I personally will not give my hard earned money to any company who is this petty. I urge you not to either. Join me and many others in a boycott of this company (based out of New York) to encourage them to grow up and stop the harrassment of responsible citizens who are excersising their right to Free Speech.

I'd post links, but I'm not very good at this yet and don't know how. One of these days I'll get a little time (when I'm not too tired to think straight and retain information) to sit and figure it out.
