Kent Repair Time fix-it events

Six repair events have been held in Kent. All upcoming King County repair events will be posted on the main repair events web page as they are scheduled.

At repair events, bring your small household items including clothing, and our experienced "fixers" will try to repair and mend them. We want to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money. Free to the public!

Although we do take walk-ins, please sign up in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, to help our fixers be prepared for what might come in.

All our repair events are "first-come, first-served," with no appointments or set times. We try, if possible, to work on at least one item from everyone who comes in. If you bring more than one item, we will try to work on your other items as time allows.

For specialized repairs (which many are), we may not be able to work on your item unless you bring the specific parts or materials needed for your repair.

Please only bring items for us to work on that are small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, use gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles that you bring in for mending should be washed first.

At these free repair events, there is no assurance an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won't break it even more. You must be present during the repair.

If you have questions about any King County repair events, please contact Tom Watson by e-mail or at 206-477-4481. Thanks!
