WILLIAMSTOWN REPAIR CAFÉ SATURDAY OCTOBER 27 AT SHEEP HILL
Got a broken lamp? A sock with a hole? A ripped out seam? A necklace with leaking rhinestones? A knife that has ceased to be the sharpest blade in the drawer?
Come to Repair Café, co-sponsored by the South Williamstown Community Association and the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation, at Sheep Hill, 671 Cold Spring Road (Route 7) Saturday afternoon, October 27, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Our volunteer “fixers” include people who can do small electrical repairs (vacuum cleaners, immersion blenders, lamps), wooden furniture repair (chairs, benches, frames), blade sharpening (knives, scissors, small tools), costume jewelry repairs (rhinestone replacement, new clasps), small bike repairs (tire or chain help), and our ever popular darners, knitters, and sewers.
We will have two computer experts, Dog Trainer Susan Rodman and we are continuing to partner with the BagShare Project to make reusable shopping bags. We’ll have materials and grommet machines to make them. Come and learn how to make a bag. It’s a good activity for older children, and it keeps all kinds of animal feed and barley bags out of the landfill.
Repair Café is free, although donations are accepted. It’s all about helping our neighbors and helping our planet. There’ll even be refreshments.
The Repair Café concept arose in the Netherlands in 2009. There are now hundreds all over the world.
