Building community through repair


Does your fall coat need mending? Is your bike begging for working fenders? Fall is a great time to round up the items in your home in need of repair. Repair PDX has several upcoming community events that bring together handy volunteers who like to fix things with people who have items in need of repair. At most events, repair volunteers fix small appliances, bikes and mend garments.

Join us at a Repair Café near you and learn do-it-yourself (DIY) tips to get your items back in use again!
