Bring in your broken treasures for fix-it help and advice!
What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a toaster that no longer works? Or a sweater with moth holes? Toss it? No way! You can get help to repair it at the Repair Café !

Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together).
At the Repair Café, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need on clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, and more ! You will also find repair specialists/coaches such as electricians, seamstresses, carpenters and bicycle mechanics.
Visitors bring their broken items from home. Together with the specialists they start making their repairs in the Repair Café. It’s an ongoing learning process. Even if you have nothing to repair, you can come and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a cookie.
Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job. You can also get inspired at the reading table – by leafing through books on repairs and DIY.
Please come to the next Repair Café at FELC on:
Saturday October 21 from 9:00am-12:00 noon.
