ZWV is proud to cosponsor Vashon Fix-It Café, a group of fixers helping repair items to keep them out of the landfill. Vashon Tool Library and the King County Library System are also sponsors that have helped make this rewarding community service possible.
A Repair Café is a meeting place where people work together, with the help of experienced repair people, to mend broken household items that they bring in. The usual items are electrical appliances, furniture, clothing, toys, or just about anything thing that you can carry in by yourself. There is no cost, but also no guarantee that your item can be fixed there. You will be expected to participate in the repair or learn how to repair it on your own at home. The emphasis is on community-building, keeping well-loved useful items out of the landfill, and learning how to make repairs on your own.
The first Fix-It Café held on March 18, 2017 was a rousing success! About 6 dozen repairs made! Stay tuned for future events.
