Upcoming Repair Cafes – Fall 2019

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 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 per visit.

Saturdays @ WSU Extension’s Education Center located in McCollum Park
  • September 21
  • October 19
  • November 16

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!

Thank you for all that participated in our Spring 2019 Repair Cafes! More than  200 community members were helped so far this year with repairs and over 250 items were repaired rather than replaced, saving them from the landfill!

A HUGE thanks goes to our skilled Repair Specialists and those that took the time to bring in their items for repair! Together we make a difference! And thank you to Snohomish County Solid Waste for their funding of this valuable community program.
