Why You Should Care About Your Right to Repair Gadgets

Virtual Fix-It Cafe scheduled for May 15

The Vashon Fix-It Café, dedicated to reducing waste and building community, is coming
virtually to Vashon-Maury Islands on Saturday, May 15, from 10am to 2pm at Vashon Eagles. The
Fix-It Café will be hosted by the Vashon Island Time Exchange and will feature helpful locals
donating their skills to restore household items that are broken or malfunctioning.
The public is invited to present items needing repair including lamps, kitchen appliances,
clothing, and electronics. People wanting to just observe may also attend. To pre-register, sign up at https://www.vashonresilience.org/may15

There are three sessions planned: Lamps, Kitchen Appliances, and Other Household Repairs.  Participants will be encouraged and guided in making their own repairs, so a tool kit should behandy. Fixing and advice are free to the public, but if parts are needed, participants may be required to acquire them at cost.

The Vashon Fix-It Café is hosted by the Vashon Island Time Exchange and staffed by members of the Vashon Tool Library, and Zero Waste Vashon with support from the King County EcoConsumer Program.


2020 Spring Fix-It Cafe Canceled

In the interest of our collective community health we have decided to cancel the Spring Fix-It Cafe at the Eagles on March 28th. It’s time to stay home and work on projects there. Here’s hoping we all stay well and get amazing things done during this time. Stay well, stay home!
