Don't despair, repair! Bring your wobbly chairs, tattered shirts, shattered phone screens, malfunctioning bicycles, torn stuffed animals, and toasters on-the-blink to the Repair Café. A crew of volunteers will be on hand to help you diagnose and fix your things.

Volunteers will help you troubleshoot your broken thing and provide a prescription for how it can be repaired. When possible, volunteers will help you make on-site, real-time repairs—and send you home with a fixed thing. For other repairs, like those that require specialized replacement parts, the prescription will guide you through what's needed to repair the item.

@Kiddos and doggos: Bring your sick and wounded stuffed animals to the Stuffed Animal Hospital. Volunteers will be ready to give your stuffed animal special care, like replacing missing stuffing and patching any holes so you can keep playing with your stuffie.

There is no fee for participating in this event, but local coffee carts and drink vendors will offer yummy beverages for purchase. Get a drink for you and, perhaps, for a volunteer? It is a repair "café" after all! Enjoy a refreshment while repairing and learning. 

By connecting people who know how to repair with people who have things that need repair, we can ensure more things are fixed and used instead of discarded and replaced.

When: Sunday, April 21st, from 10 am - 2 pm. 

Where: Durango Tool Library, 278 Sawyer Drive, Unit 4A.
