What is a Repair Café?
Repair Cafés are free meeting places for repairing things (together). At the Repair Café you will find the expertise, tools and materials required to help you make many of the repairs you need. Volunteer fixers will be on hand to help and guide the repairs. You can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee or even lend a hand with someone else’s repair job.
A Repair Café is not a place to drop off your items to be fixed and picked-up at a later time. We request that you stay on-site while your item is being repaired. Visit www.repaircafe.org for more info.
Call for volunteers
We are looking for volunteers for Squamish’s Repair Café! Interested? Contact Shannon at [email protected] or 604.815.5057.
Can you fix small appliances, sew or mend? What about repairing jewelry, small furniture, toys? Would you like to teach people how to repair their items in a relaxed and fun atmosphere?
Our volunteer fixers are the backbone of the program. Without them, it wouldn’t be possible!
This event is being put on by the District of Squamish and Squamish CAN as part of a zero waste workshop series.
