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!

Gearing up for the Repair Cafe: Alison Murphy of Utilitu

How To Opt Out of Junk Mail

Since opting out of junk mail a couple years ago, I don’t get nearly as much as I used to. Phone books? I use my phone. Catalogs? I go to a store. Still, I have a long way to go when it comes to dealing with paper clutter, from switching to paperless billing to simply […]
