Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

A half-day community gathering — some folks bring broken things, others bring know-how and tools, and yet others bring hospitality — and everyone brings goodwill and zeal for fixing.

Though free, Repair Cafés aren't free repair services.  They're participatory events — neighbors helping each other out, getting to know each other over coffee, muffins, and repair projects, and squeezing more life out of the things they already have.

Besides Fixing... We'll have a café — coffee, tea and pastries, perhaps repair tutorials, perhaps conversation with folks deeply involved in repair and reuse ... all's in the works.

So bring your broken things, puzzle over them with volunteer fixers, then work together to bring them back to life, if possible.
