Free! Bring in your small household items and clothing, and our experienced "fixers" will try to repair and mend them. Join us at the historic White Center Community Center fieldhouse/gym (aka "the Log Cabin") in Steve Cox Memorial Park, just east of McLendon Hardware.
Sign-ups are informal and not required, but if you would like to sign up to attend, contact Tom Watson by e-mail or at 206-477-4481.
You must be present during the repair. There is no assurance an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won't break it even more.
It's "first-come, first-served" (matching the items with the fixers with the appropriate skills) and 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 small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles that you bring in for mending should be washed first.
Although we encourage walk-ins, please sign up in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, so our fixers can be prepared.
This repair event - aimed at reducing waste and building community! - is brought to you by the King County Solid Waste Division's EcoConsumer public outreach program, and King County Parks Division. The schedule for all King County-sponsored repair events (and other area repair events, as we hear about them) is on the King County repair events home page. Thanks!
