Virtual Fix-It Cafe scheduled for January 16

The Vashon Fix-It Café, dedicated to reducing waste and building community, is coming
virtually to Vashon-Maury Islands on Saturday, January 16, from 9am to 1pm via Zoom. 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

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, Zero Waste Vashon, and Backbone Campaign, with support from the King County EcoConsumer Program.
