Now in its 29th year, the Fix-It Fairs are free events where neighbors come together to learn simple and effective ways to save money and stay healthy at home this winter and beyond.
What is a Fix-It Fair? Each all-day fair features exhibits and workshops from dozens of community partners. Experts are ready to talk about water and energy savings, home and personal health, food and nutrition, community resources, recycling, yard care and more! Each fair also provides free professional childcare and lunch to attendees.
At the upcoming fair in November, SCRAP PDX will offer a Do-It-Yourself Gifts workshop where attendees will make a simple craft project and see lots of examples of easy, fun and affordable gifts. Repair PDX will again offer Repair Café, where volunteer “fixers” will be on-hand to repair small countertop appliances and clothing or other items to sew, like a backpack or stuffed animal.
