King County’s ‘Repair Time’ groups and events

Upcoming repair events

The King County EcoConsumer public outreach program helps sponsor repair groups and events in King County, 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 as well.

Each repair event or group operates differently, based on the needs of the local community. It might be a one-time event, or they may be held every few months.

At all of these events, people can bring in household items including small furniture, small appliances, personal electronics and clothing. (What are the items we see the most? Lamps and pants!) Our overall success rate at these events for repairing items or helpfully diagnosing the problem (you may need to get a new part, for example) has been 80 percent or higher, although some electronics are often difficult to fix.

Contact Tom Watson via e-mail or at 206-477-4481 if you have any questions about these events. Also contact Tom if possible to let us know in advance what items you are planning to bring, which is helpful to the fixers. But walk-ins are fine too!
