Summer Repair Cafe at DIY Cave!

July 17 @ 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!

We’re excited to return to DIYcave with a small army of volunteers who live to tinker and fix to help you get your stuff working again. Repairs include:

  • Sewing (outdoor gear, clothes, etc.) No alterations please.
  • Small appliances
  • Electronics
  • Jewelry
  • Knit goods
  • Small furniture
  • Bicycles
  • Not sure? Bring it!

Interested in being a repair volunteer? Have any other questions about the event? Email ani to get on board, or call 541-385-6908 x26

It’s Electric!

  This time of year in Central Oregon, our electric meters are spinning faster than hamster wheels.
