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!

Use It Up, Wear It Out

  “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without” Growing up in Finland, one of the important life skills I learned was darning a woolen sock using a wooden ‘mushroom’ as a form, weaving wool thread criss-cross from side to side with a big needle.  With fiercely cold winters, woolen socks […]

Less Is More

Last year, after a New Year’s inspired run on decluttering my home, I learned that the less stuff I have, the less I have to organize. It’s certainly a work in progress (always the desk!) but it’s helping me to not be so attached to having, acquiring, buying, and storing so much stuff – even if […]

Avoid Leftover Leftovers

As mentioned in an earlier post, we create an additional 25% more waste over the holiday period, and a part of that can be attributed to the increase in holiday parties this time of year.  Food waste in America is actually a big problem – some statistics say that 40% of food is wasted between […]
