Repair Cafe

Come to the Repair Cafe!  Our first Repair Cafe was a big success and a lot of fun!  A Repair Cafe is a place where people can bring things that need to be fixed or mended instead of throwing them away.  Many different types of repairs occur at the cafe from mending clothes to fixing small appliances or jewelry.  It's a great way to help keep things out of the landfill as well as save money.  NBC Nightly News recently had a wonderful segment on Repair Cafes.  More information on the international movement is here:

Our second Repair Cafe will be at Miller Library on Saturday July 15 from 2pm - 4pm.  We expect this event to be even bigger and better than our first one!  Bring your broken items and/or bring your questions if the item is something that you can't bring with you like plumbing.  We will have many knowledgeable and talented fixers on hand to help.  We will be doing a few new activities at our second one so stay tuned for more details.  

If you would like to bring one or more broken items to the next Repair Cafe, please fill out the form to the right so we can have the appropriate people and tools on hand for the repair. 

If you have the ability to repair items and are interested in participating in the Repair Cafe, please fill out the form below.  Even if you aren't available on one of our scheduled dates, please fill out the form so we can let you know as other dates are scheduled. If you have any questions, please contact
