A Repair Café is a meeting place where people work together, with the help of experienced repair people, to mend broken household items that they bring in.  The usual items are electrical appliances, furniture, clothing, toys, or just about anything thing that you can carry in by yourself.  There is no cost, but also no guarantee that your item can be fixed there.  You will be expected to participate in the repair or learn how to repair it on your own at home.  The emphasis is on community-building, keeping well-loved useful items out of the landfill, and learning how to make repairs on your own.

Hooray for Vashon!

The First Vashon Fix-It Café was a wonderful event.

We fixed a lot. We learned a lot. We saved some serious poundage from the landfill. So, let’s do it again. Watch this space and the Facebook page for the next Café, sometime in June. Bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. You must be present while your item is being fixed so you can learn too. Free to public. REGISTER ON ONE OF THE FORMS BELOW:
