It’s time to gather all your “fixables” & bring them to our Repair Café on Saturday, October 19, from 1- 4 pm.
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, or a computer that’s not computing like it used to?
Come to the 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 19, 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, 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.
Rain or Shine. It’s all free at Sheep Hill, 1161 Cold Spring Road (Rt. 7) in Williamstown, MA
