Spring Repair Cafe

April 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A Repair Cafe connects people with broken stuff, with people that like to fix stuff. Repairing instead of replacing prevents waste and saves resources. Doing it with other people makes it fun and cultivates community!

For this Spring Repair Cafe, we’re returning to The Gear Fix! We’ll have volunteer fixers on hand to repair your broken items, for free!Items to bring include:

  • Small appliances
  • Clothing (just repairs, no alterations please)
  • Outdoor Gear
  • Small furniture
  • Jewelry
  • Electronics
  • Boots and shoes
  • Bikes
  • If you’re not sure, bring it!

If you have questions about this event, or are interested in becoming a volunteer fixer, please contact Ani by email or phone, (541) 385-6908 x 26
