Bring items that need repair, and knowledgeable volunteers will help you try to fix them for free. The volunteers can work on items such as clean, mendable clothing; lamps; small appliances; computers and other electronics; bikes; toys; outdoor power equipment; and jewelry. They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools. You only pay for needed parts. If you know what parts are needed, please get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Café to save time.
