Fix-It Cafe: October 16

The Vashon Fix-It Café, dedicated to reducing waste and building community, is happening on Saturday, October 16, from 10am to 2pm at Vashon Eagles. The Fix-It Café features 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.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT COVID-19 The safety of the Vashon community and our Fix-It staff is our primary concern. The Fix-It Cafe will require all staff and participants to be fully vaccinated and in addition no-one should attend if they have any sickness or symptoms, irrespective of their vaccination status. Masks must be worn indoors and social distancing exercised. This Fix-It Cafe will offer virtual fixing advice by Zoom as well as the option of dropping off items for later collection. The Fixers will work mainly outside at the Eagles’ clubhouse.

Preregistration is required and appointments will be scheduled for drop off and pick-up.

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 staffed by members of the Vashon Tool Library, the Vashon Island Time Exchange, and Zero Waste Vashon with support from the King County EcoConsumer Program.
