Redmond Repair Cafe

October 30, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

A Repair Cafe is an event that pairs people with broken stuff, with people who like to fix stuff.

Our fabulous fixers will be at the Redmond Public Library on October 30th to fix your broken stuff! Small appliances and electronics, clothing and outdoor gear, small furniture, and jewelry.  These repairs are free and performed on a voluntary basis. You can bring multiple items for repair, but we ask that you get one item repaired at a time.

This event marks 5 years that we have been organizing these events in our community, and it closely follows International Repair Cafe Week!

NOTE: The Source Weekly lists this event as also occurring at the Bend Library location and this is incorrect – this event is ONLY happening in REDMOND. Apologies for the confusion!

Black Friday Shoppers: This is the Least You Can Do.

In the past we’ve written about 10 things to do other than shop on Black Friday. 4 years ago REI started their #OptOutside campaign, and began closing its doors on Friday to make a pretty bold statement about using this day as an opportunity to choose being outdoors over our cultural push to just keep.buying.more.stuff.  Oregon State Parks recently […]

The Less You Have, the Less You Have to Organize.

This is the lesson I am learning in my quest to reduce the amount of clutter – on my desk, on the mantle, in my closet, in laundry room cabinets – the less extra stuff I have the less organizing I have to do.  This is great news for disorganized people like myself.  I’ve been […]

Repair Revolution

Repair is having a moment. Two generations ago, most people could handle simple repairs, and most things manufactured were inherently repairable. Fast forward to our current state of fast consumerism, where things are made to be obsolete (“planned obsolesence)” within 6 months. Sometimes that’s through new colorful designs, sometimes by changing power cords, but often […]
