With 2020 coming to a close, now seems the right time to take a moment to reflect on what we accomplished this year, and to give thanks to those who supported and helped us through this tough year.
Here is a short video we put together to highlight some of the amazing things that happened in 2020:
The Stitch Community in 2020
2020 was by far the biggest year for the Stitch Community to date. The past year saw:
Over 26,000 new members join the community …
… in over 2000 towns and cities around the world …
… hosting an incredible 4,294 events & activities …
… all of which led to an incredible 278,564 new social connections being created!
It was truly incredible to see.
For everyone on the Stitch team, however, it’s not about the numbers, it’s the people. I can’t describe the number of times this year that an encouraging message from a Stitch member has helped lift my spirits and helped me get through.
And I know that goes for everyone on the Stitch team.
2020 posed so many challenges, but one thing it did do is remind us what to be thankful for.
So to all our Stitch members both long-standing and new … THANK YOU!
Without every single one of you, there’d be no Stitch.
Thank you for your guidance, advice, encouragement (and yes, even your complaints) throughout 2020. Your encouragement and feedback is what inspires us to keep improving Stitch and keep growing and building our communities around the world.
A special mention to our Community Champions and volunteers around the world who dedicate so much of their time to building their local communities, one Stitch member at a time.
Your enthusiasm and willingness to organize and host events, create new discussions in our online forums, and set up groups is awe-inspiring. Thank you.
Here’s hoping you all manage to stay safe over the New Year period, and here’s looking forward to making sure 2021 is far better for all of us.
