Upcoming King County-sponsored repair events

Updated schedule

King County is not holding its regular indoor repair events in 2020 and 2021, due to the pandemic.

2021 outdoor repair events

A few more additional 2021 events may be added.

At these free community repair events, our skilled "fixers" try to repair or mend your items.

The format of these events, and services provided, have been changed due to the pandemic.

These 2021 repair events will be all-outdoors, with "fixers" working under tents or overhangs. Repair customers will remain in their vehicle, or distanced if they don't come by vehicle. Masks are required. These repair events this year will not be social gatherings.

Customers should sign up in advance. One item per customer. To try to space out the repair and mending jobs, you will be given a time to arrive (on the hour or half-hour).

You may still have to wait a while, and it's still possible we won't get to your item (since we never know how long each repair will take). And as always, we may not be able to fix your item.

To sign up for this year's events or if you have questions about the program, contact repair events coordinator Tom Watson email Tom Watson via e-mail or at 206-477-4481.

At these 2021 events, we will work on small household and personal items (including some electronics), as well as clothing and textiles. No lengthy reconstructive repairs. No major clothing alterations. No knife or tool sharpening this year.

We may have to decline to work on an item – in advance or at the event – depending on the item, the type of repair needed, or the fixers available. Customers may be asked to buy and bring specific parts needed for their repair.

Customers must sign a Customer Agreement and Liability Release before we begin working on your item.

Other upcoming area repair events

Other area in-person repair events will also be listed here as we hear about them.

In addition, that Snohomish County WSU Extension external link repair program and other repair programs (including the South King Tool Library external link in Federal Way, Vashon Tool Library external link and Zero Waste Washington external link repair programs) may also be holding remote, drop-off or virtual repair events this year.
