The South Williamstown Community Association

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 Williamstown Rural Lands at Sheep Hill, 671 Cold Spring Road (Route 7) Saturday afternoon, April 29, 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), leather repairs, and our ever popular darners, knitters, and sewers.

We will have two computer experts, refreshments, 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. It’s kid friendly (lots of amphibian action at the pond behind Sheep Hill) and there’ll be refreshments.

Same day, but in the morning from 9am until noon, it's Litter Cleanup Day.  Details below:
