Join us Saturday, March 21 from 12-3 pm in the H. Dutcher Community Room of the Saratoga Springs Public Library. Sustainable Saratoga and the Saratoga Springs Public Library are hosting another Repair Café. Repair Café is a free community event with the goals of repairing broken objects to extend their life, keeping things out of landfills, and fostering an appreciation for the art of repairing things.
Volunteer repair coaches will be available to help you repair your broken items free of charge. The coaches provide the tools and we supply basic materials to repair common items. People visiting the Repair Café will bring along their broken items from home. Lamps, clocks, hair dryers, clothes & textile (repairs & minor alterations), dolls, small kitchen appliances, jewelry, wooden toys & small furniture…most things are welcome and can more than likely be repaired with the help of a knowledgeable Repair Café coach. We cannot guarantee we can fix everything, but we are pretty sure you will have a good time!
Bring what you can carry (limit of 2 items), and let a repair coach help you fix it. Please note: you are encouraged to actively participate in fixing your item and you must remain present during the repairs.
If you are handy and would like to be a repair coach, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
