Upcoming Repair Cafes

Got broken stuff? Bring it to one of our Repair Cafes – for FREE!

At our Repair Cafes, you bring the broken items (and parts if you know what it needs), and our handy volunteers bring their skills to help you fix it!

While you wait, enjoy a cup of coffee, or tour the gardens maintained by our Snohomish County WSU Master Gardeners! Adults and kids alike are invited to tinker and make recycled art at our “Creation Station.”

Service is first-come, first-served. No appointments needed. To allow us to serve as many community members as possible we ask for each person/party to limit their items in need of repair to 2  items per visit. Like all WSU Extension events, these are open to all without discrimination.

Saturdays at Snohomish County WSU Extension Education Center in McCollum Park.

Volunteers needed!

If you are interested in lending your talents as a Repair Specialist (aka “Fixer”) or volunteer, or just have feedback to share we would love to hear from you! Don’t let the word “specialist” scare you away. Our fixer volunteers range from school teachers to Boeing engineers, yet all have the love of tinkering and fixing things in common.

Contact program coordinator: Heather Teegarden by email or call 425-357-6027.

Thank you to our partners:

Special thank you to Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop and the Snohomish County Clothing and Textile Adivors! Their volunteers have been partnering with us since our first Repair Cafe event in March of 2018. Be sure to check out their Sharing Wheels bike store in Everett and CTA sewing events on Facebook!

Thank you to Snohomish County Solid Waste for their funding of this valuable community program and of course Repair Café International for letting us be part of their growing network of global Repair Cafes.

Thanks also goes to King County Solid Waste and Sno Isle Libraries for their ongoing support!
