If you're organizing an activity on Stitch, you can choose who gets invited and can attend. During the event creation process, you'll see a page that looks like this:

Who would you like to invite?

At the top of the page, you can choose whether you would like us to invite:

  • The entire Stitch Community

  • Members of a Stitch Group

  • Nobody, this is a Private event

Each of these options is explained in detail below.

Inviting the entire Stitch Community

The event is open to all members of the Community, and will be included in the daily and weekly notification emails, as well as being listed on the Activities page.

In addition to deciding where your event is posted, you also get to choose who can click the Attend button to register as an attendee.

By default, events created on Stitch are for Full members only, as well as any new members of the community (i.e. who've been verified in the last 30 days), as a way to welcome new members to the community and help introduce them to what Stitch is all about.

You can, however, change this setting by selecting the Advanced link, which will show you some additional options as shown in the image below:

You can choose from the following options:

  • Full Members Only

  • Full Members + New members

  • Any verified Stitch member

  • General Public

Each of these options is explained below.

Full members only
Only Full members of Stitch can attend the activity.

Full members + new members
The event is primarily for Full members of Stitch, but new members who have been verified in the last 30 days can also attend, as a way to welcome them to the community and introduce them to Stitch. This is the default setting.

Any verified Stitch member
Any verified member of Stitch can attend. This includes both Full members and Limited members of Stitch.

General public
Anyone can attend this event. This includes both Full members and Limited members of Stitch. Event details may be posted publicly on the Internet for non-members to view.

You can set a limit for the total number of attendees for your activity by changing the number in the Max. total attendees field.

Inviting members of a Stitch group

This option will send an instant invite to all members of the Stitch Group you choose, giving them priority notification about the event (one of the advantages of being a member of the Group!). It will also open the event to the whole community, as per above.

Making your activity private

If you choose this option, you will need to manually add or invite attendees to the event after it is published. It won’t show up or be included in notifications.
