Button replacements, patches, minor alterations; lamp and toaster repair. Appliances, clothing, electronics, dull tools and knives--Repair Cafe volunteers will try their best to fix them all.
Repair your back! Stephen Yelich has been a massage therapist for 31 years, he employs many styles, and truly loves healing the world one person at time. He will be at Repair Cafe with his massage chair, ready to help.
Need an expert on apple computers? Has your Mac slowed way, way down? Do you click to open an application, but nothing happens? Are your files slowly disappearing? Are you continually getting popup messages that you can’t understand? (“WARNING: Blingenfoff has become inactive. Press Bortle to abort.”) Bring it in and Mike O'Brien will take a look. And bring iPhones and iPads: he'll fix apps, but not shattered screens.
Why not learn to repair your own stuff with skilled volunteers? Tools are available for fixing, or just watch and learn. Join the fun.
Bring something, take something at the Really Really Free Market where everything is 100% off!
Also seed giveaway and garden advice.
When something breaks, keep it out of the landfill and save money on a replacement by bringing it to Repair Café. Come on out and see your neighbors: everyone is welcome. It helps if attendees indicate that they plan to attend.
The volunteers enjoy doing good while spending time together; a warm community has developed. You can volunteer even if it is your first visit to Repair Cafe.
Repair Cafe is a project of Transition Pasadena, an award-winning sustainability group that is part of a world-wide movement to build resilience in everyone’s own hometown. Co-sponsorship by Neighborhood Connections, a public service of the City of Pasadena.
