U.S. Trademark Application, Serial No. 78641350, filed June 1, 2005 for…
STITCH AND BITCH
For use in association with “Knitting and sewing supplies namely: Knitting kits, sewing kits, knitting needles, sewing needles, seam rippers, tracing wheels, measuring tapes, rulers, scissors, magnetic seam guides, mugs, knitting instructions, sewing instructions, patterns, fabric, pre-cut material, thread, buttons, webbing, pin cushions, thimbles, marking pencils, hangers and pins” and “Printed materials, namely patterns for sewing, knitting, and crochet, greeting cards and printed instructional books and manuals on sewing knitting, DIY, and crochet.”
The owner? Sew Fast/Sew Easy, of course. Here are excerpts from the photographic specimens showing use of the mark:
That tape measure is from the photograph you see here. The other thing is a printed workbook.
The application claims that first use of the mark occurred in 1998. It was only last month that their website had been altered to offer “Stitch & Bitch”-marked merchandise for sale online (with an ampersand, yes, not the word “and”), but for all I know, it was available in-store since the last decade.
