King County's 'Repair Time' groups and events

2018 repair events will begin in March

Our 2017 repair events season has ended! Please check this page to see when the 2018 repair events are scheduled. Scheduling of the first events in 2018 will likely begin in late November or December.

The King County EcoConsumer public outreach program sponsors these free repair events around King County (outside Seattle), where people can bring small household items and clothing. Our experienced all-purpose fixers and sewing fixers will work on them, and can help you learn repair tips as well.

Each repair event might operate a little differently, based on the venue, the needs of the local community, and more. They might be one-time events, or they may eventually be adopted by a local community and run by other organizations.

At these repair events, people bring in items such as lamps, vacuums, fans, chairs, tools, VCRs, music players, blenders, toasters, toys, pants, dresses, hijabs and much, much more! Our overall success rate at these events for repairing and mending items or helpfully diagnosing the problem (you may need to get a new part, for example) has been 80 percent or higher.

Contact Tom Watson via e-mail or at 206-477-4481 if you have any questions about these events.
