Watching the Stitch Community Grow

Stitch Community

Stitch has always had the vision to be more than a “dating site.” We connect people for companionship. This includes friendship, romance, and everything in between. We do this by focusing on common interests, backgrounds, and hobbies. For the past couple of months, we’ve been testing a new way to connect our members, and are proud to share our newest feature: Member-driven group activities.

Stitchers told us they would love to be able to post something they would like to do with others and then coordinate that activity amongst themselves. So, we listened to their suggestions, we built it, we launched it, and now we are watching our community grow! Here is some initial feedback from our members:

Thank you for creating Stitch, My social life up to this point, has never been better or busier. It must be a wonderful feeling to see your vision actually materialize. Keep up the good work.” – Faye, San Francisco

Just want to say: what a fantastic community-minded service you have created! There are so many people in the upper age bracket you are targeting who have become isolated from socialising; Hopefully through Stitch new friendships will be forged, Thank you so much”- Jay, Sydney

Stitch CommunityTo our pleasure and surprise, Stitchers all over the world have been organizing group activities ranging from a casual coffee to a trivia night to a day at the museum!

We feel so inspired by our members and the amazing group activities they are doing together! Bea from San Francisco even made her own Stitch signs so that other Stitchers could easily find her! We’re also testing out some new Stitch buttons, which you can read more about here:

Here are some photos from Stitch Group Activities from around the globe:

We can’t wait to watch what happens next. Stay tuned, Stitchers!

    Great party – SF Gala Opening.
    Wonderful creative and hardworking staff… provided super appetizers, lots of perfect bar pours… and an awesome amount of interactive memebers.

    just found and joined this site this eve. I am wondering if there are many Canadians on this site, esp from S. Ontario. The reason being, I really want to travel and find a partner but it is just a lot more convenient to meet in person with someone from my area. No offence to my American friends, love meeting and chatting with you in Europe.
    So, Ontario people esp with an interest in European travel, lets talk!

      Hi Merla,
      We actually do have a couple hundred members in the Toronto area, although I’m not sure if that’s close to you! We’re definitely trying to grow, so any help you can provide would be great. We’re also looking for Stitch Ambassadors to help us put a few group activities together via Meetup! It makes sense you would want to have a travel partner close by, and I can assure you, that’s the TOP interest on Stitch! So, the more we can get the word out, the sooner you’ll have a European travel buddy in S. Ontario! Contact us at if you’d like to become an Ambassador 🙂

    I live in Georgia. I have not been able to locate very many people that are in the Atlanta area. I would love to have fellowship as groups to greet and meet and take everything to friendship with others. Do you have any suggestions. It seems since I joined I have not seen our area grow. I noticed on facebook that people are asking has anyone had any results with this website. I cannot respond because I have not. I will do whatever I can to help us grow in the South.\

    1. Marcie Rogo

      Hi Terri, thank you so much for your comment. The Atlanta area is definitely on our target list, and I apologize that our growth there hasn’t happened yet. We do have a handful of members, so that means you can suggest a group activity and meet a few people. That being said, we do need your help! We are trying to identity enthusiastic Stitch Ambassadors in these locations to help us help you to grow by letting us know where we should advertise, and helping us with a group that we can use to attract new members! If you’re interested in this, please do contact us at Thank you so, so much for your support and patience with us!

    I joined Stitch several months ago and read religiously about the groups in California. I envied them and wanted friends. My husband passed away last year and I was very lonely. Then, I read about a Stitch Ambassador, Jackie, from the Chesapeake, VA area. I live in Fredericksburg, VA. I inquired about her and was sent a link to her website, where I found the Meetup App.. Since then, I’ve found so many groups in Fredericksburg and surrounding areas that I’ve joined. I have several friends, am constantly on the go, to events such as dinner and dancing, yoga, vineyards with live music, hot spots in town and just having fun! All of this is due to Stitch! ? Without Stitch, I’d still be lonely, staying at home, looking for friends! Thank you to everyone at Stitch!

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for the great feedback — I can’t tell you how rewarding it is when we hear positive feedback about what we’re doing from our members! Particularly in areas where the Stitch community is still small … it really lets us know that we’re on the right track!

      Many thanks,
