Repair Café at Howland Center on May 28
Bring your beloved but broken items to the Repair Café to be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 28, at the Howland Cultural Center and volunteers will fix them for free. Please only bring items that you can carry in and carry out; the volunteers will ask you to stay with your item and perhaps tell them something about it.
The purpose, say organizers, is to build awareness around reducing waste and creatively re-using stuff; preserving know-how and celebrating curiosity; and building community and having fun with neighbors.
Items that will be considered include mechanical and electrical, things made of wood, clothing and textiles, jewelry, tool sharpening and repair, digital device configuration and dolls and stuffed animals.
