What’s a Repair Café? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/18/us/repair-cafe.html
Repair Cafe is a free community meeting place to bring a beloved, but broken item to be repaired. *For free! Our “repair coaches” are guys and gals with significant skills who generously volunteer their time for this non-profit project. It’s open to everyone no matter where they live. It’s about fixing things -– lamps & small electrics, clothing & textiles, soft toys, jewelry, bikes, things made of wood, knife & tool sharpening, — together! Adult-supervised Kids-Take-It-Apart Table – no need to put things back! * We must charge for lamp/bike parts at our costs.
Toss it? No way. Bring your beloved but broken item to the Repair Cafe!
- To transform our throw-away economy, one beloved item at a time
- To reduce how much stuff goes into the waste stream
- To preserve traditional repair know-how & skills, & pass them on
- To show people who have this knowledge that they are valued
- To feed curiosity about “how things work,” & have fun!
- To build community & sustainability
