Got broken stuff? Toss it? No way! Bring it to a WSU Repair Café!

Have something you think can be fixed? Or, are you a fixer and like to help others? The Repair Café is here for you!

Bring your vacuums, lamps, bikes, jewelry…anything you might have and one of our volunteer fixers will diagnose the issue and do their best to make it usable again. They will show you their process, order parts if necessary, and help you learn how you can do it on your own with videos or one-on-one instruction.

Please note: We are unable to fund the cost of any additional parts needed. If a part needs to be purchased our volunteer will contact you to discuss before a part is ordered. Repairs are not guaranteed, and we cannot be held responsible for any damage made in attempt to repair items.

These meet-ups take place at locations around Snohomish County. Two item maximum per meeting.

Next Repair Café: 10AM to 2PM

Steps To Participate:

  • Arrive at the Lynnwood Library between 10AM and 2PM
  • Repair Specialists will be on-site to help with your item and will work with you on repairing.

Repair Café Facts:

There are over 2,200 Repair Cafés worldwide. Created in 2009, Martine Postma held the first Repair Café in Amsterdam and its success generated additional Repair Cafes in Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, India, Japan and many other countries. The result?  People with repair expertise pass along invaluable practical skills, items are being used longer and don’t have to be thrown away. This reduces the volume of raw materials and energy needed to make new products and cuts CO2 emissions which help towards a more sustainable society.
