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, October 14, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Our volunteer “fixers” include people who can do small electrical repairs, wooden furniture repair, blade sharpening (knives, scissors, small tools), costume jewelry repairs, leather repairs, and our ever popular darners, knitters, and sewers. There’ll be computer advice and something new this time — if you have a window screen that’s letting the mosquitos in, bring it in for re-screening.
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.
