Repair Café in March

The Repair Café will be back at Skills for Change in March. At this monthly gathering, we will have volunteer fixers available for computers, electronics, small appliances, clothes, jewellery and books, 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 1 p.m. so that there is enough time for the fixer to examine your item. For more info about visiting the Repair Café, please go to the Visit page.
