Bring your items that need repair, and knowledgeable volunteers will help you try to fix them for FREE! 

The volunteers can work on items such as clean mendable clothing, knitted and crocheted items, lamps, small appliances, computers and other electronics, bikes, toys, jewelry and sewing machines.  They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools.

You only pay for needed parts. If you know what parts are needed, please get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Café to save time.

Volunteers at the Repair Café will look at all items brought in and help try to repair them.

If the volunteers cannot repair something, they will offer suggestions about where you could go for repairs. 

If you are happy with the event and our help we will have donation bins for you to contribute to the cause.
