Repair Café – Roxbury
Join us Saturday, Sept. 29th, 10am-3pm at the Roxbury Arts Group, 5025 Vega Mountain Rd in Roxbury for our sixth Repair Café.
Thrilled. That was the dominant emotion felt by the two-dozen people who brought their broken items to be fixed at the Repair Café we held in Delhi in July. They were thrilled to finally get their broken possessions fixed and put back into service, whether it was a chandelier with a faulty switch, a toaster oven that had stopped toasting, a vacuum cleaner that no longer cooperated, or a favorite pair of pants with a tear at the knee.
Do you have a broken appliance that’s collecting dust till you find some way to fix it? Now’s your chance. Bring it to one of our volunteer Repair Coaches and work with them to make it run again. Do you have favorite articles of clothing that are ripped and need mending? Or maybe your blouse is missing a button. Bring it to the Repair Café and sew a button back on while enjoying a cup of coffee and a homemade cookie. We have a large assortment of buttons and thread of all colors. Our Repair Coaches will work with you to fix:
remove scratches from picture frames
digitally retouch photos
We can’t guarantee that everything will be fixed, but we’re certain you’ll have an interesting time.
