Repair Cafe Peterborough is holding a  an event Monday, July 28th at the Silver Bean Cafe.

Repair Cafe is a cool, simple concept: Bring your broken items out (July 28th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to the Silver Bean at Millennium Park), and work with Repair Cafe Fixers to mend, darn, reattach, rewire, or diagnose what needs fixing!

Items can include clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, toys, jewelry—anything really. You could find repair specialists such as electricians, seamstresses, carpenters and mechanics there. You could even become a volunteer fixer yourself.

This free event is a chance to share knowledge, build skills and get help fixing those things that just don't work anymore, the idea being that lots of useful items get tossed in landfill that could actually be fixed and re-used.

Visitors bring their broken items from home. Together with the specialists, they start making their repairs in the Repair Cafe. Everyone learns and fixes—together!

If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with another repair job.

Or just discuss and fix local and global issues!
