I found an email on someone else's site from Debbie Stoller about the situation, apparently people were emailing her asking for advice and she has her attorney involved.
My site's address is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SouthsideSNB/
so the problem isn't my site name like it is for many people--for me--it's that my byline said "Atlanta-Southside's Stitch n Bitch Group". I only had to change our byline but it's affecting a lot of groups b/c not only has their names had to change to snb but if they had captions on pics, etc. that used the phrase--they had to remove all of that too.
Debbie Stoller emailed me back and was very kind--I was suprised she emailed me back so quickly about the problem! Kudos to her!
It really is frustrating and it is making sew quick/sew easy look like a bunch of jerks. Yes--the did get sued or something for this about a year ago--it's all of a sudden--they've started back and they are targeting yahoo users. Debbie Stoller said that Yahoo isn't investigating the claims--when SQSE emails them--they just send along the infringement notice (which makes me a little disappointed in yahoo..).
