Repair Café is Coming Your Way - 'Repairers' Needed!
If you have a repair skill (such as sewing, mending, knitting, knife sharpening, repairing small electrical appliances and garden equipment, jewelry repair), please contact us to learn more about upcoming opportunities to participate in a "Repair Café". We are working with other like-minded organizations to conduct a Repair Cafe one evening in late March, and several other times throughout the year. This will require a one-hour orientation (one time only), plus a 2-hour time commitment for the Repair Cafe itself.
The skills of knowing how to repair things are becoming a lost art. The Repair Café is a way to come together as a community for an evening to share our skills to repair items and keep them in use longer and out of the landfill or recycling bin. The idea is that people can bring their torn clothes, broken zipper, broken small appliances and bicycles to a community center where a group of volunteers who like to fix things will be on hand to make repairs for free. The hope is that these Repair Cafés will become a regular occurrence throughout the county. You can learn more about these types of events at repaircafe.org.
