Repair Café

  • Jul 28, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We often talk about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, but we forget about another “R”: Repair.  It can be challenging to figure out whether repair is possible and how to get it done. So we’re excited to launch our first Repair Café to see if tackling this as a group is easier (and certainly more fun!) than doing it alone. So start digging in your closets now for things that can get a second lease on life.

Come between the hours of 12-2pm with your item to be repaired and/or your tips, tools, and experience of repairing.

Bring some snacks if you like.

    We've changed the hours to 12-2pm and canceled the pot luck dinner. I hope that doesn't inconvenience anyone.

    Hi Derryl, this is a great idea, thanks for organizing! Could bikes be included in this event, or is it targeted at small appliances only?

      Hi Christina. Yes, bikes are included. That will prompt me to bring my bike tools. If you know you need to replace something please bring the replacement part along. I won't have any spares with me apart from a puncture repair kit.

    I will be out of town, so I can not attend this one, BUT, I have many things to repair, including a counter top mixer and an old car radio.
    I am very interested in another date OR giving someone my items.

      Hi Monica. If this Cafe goes well it may be the first of many that we will schedule. Derryl

      Glad to hear it! Hard to imagine we could run out of things to repair! There is always something breaking or on the fritz... Monica
