With 2019 now well and truly in the rearview mirror, we thought it would be a good time to reflect on what was accomplished last year, and to give thanks to all our members who positively contributed to the ongoing growth and success of the Stitch Community.
How’s this for amazing?
2019 year was by far the biggest year for Stitch to date, with more than double the number of events and activities of 2018. Last year saw:
The creation of 166 new Stitch Groups …
… an incredible 2,965 events & activities …
… in over 586 locations around the world …
… all of which led to an incredible 92,542 new social connections being created!
How’s that for amazing?
Stitch events and activities were held in a growing number of cities around the world, including Sydney, Sacramento, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Melbourne, New York City, Phoenix, Chicago, and Brisbane, to name just a few.
To celebrate the amazing year, we put together a short video with some of the highlights from 2019. Check it out below:
