Repair Cafe - Yorktown

What do you do with a broken toaster?  Or with a bike when the wheel runs out of true?  Or with a sweater full of moth holes?  Toss it?  No way!

In the Fellowship Hall at Grace Lutheran Church at the corner of Curry and Gomer Streets in Yorktown, everything centers on making repairs.  Starting from 10AM and ending at 2PM, various volunteer repair experts will be available to help people make all possible repairs free of charge.  Tools and materials will also be on hand.  People visiting the Repair Café will bring their beloved but broken items from home (limit 2 items, please - and no gas-powered items).  Lamps, toasters, bikes, clocks, clothes, toys, wooden items, crockery, jewelry, computers / electronics... anything that is broken is welcome.  And can more than likely be repaired.  The Repair Café specialists almost always have the know-how to determine whether your item can be repaired, and if possible, make the repair.          

By promoting repairs, we can help reduce mountains of waste which otherwise ends up in landfills.  Repair Café is also meant to put neighbors in touch with each other in a new way.  And to discover that a lot of know-how and practical skills can be found close to home.  Above all, Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is.
