Repair Café in May – Join Us for Our 2nd Anniversary!

The Repair Café will be back at Skills for Change in May to mark our second anniversary. Please join us to celebrate this special date! At this monthly gathering, we will have volunteer fixers available for computers, electronics, small appliances and furniture, clothes, jewellery and book repairs, among others. For whatever you need fixing, bring it on! You can learn how to fix it while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. To avoid lineups, please arrive early. It would be best to arrive before 12 noon so that there is enough time for the fixer to examine your item. At this special café, you can also enjoy the art pieces created by Toronto artist Anne Winter. For more information about visiting the Repair Café, please go to the Visit page.

When: Saturday, May 23, 2015 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (arrive by 12 noon recommended)
Where: Skills for Change, 791 St. Clair Ave. West, 1st Floor  (see below for directions) Cost: Free (Donations are welcome!)
