Idea Starter: Repair Café

The Town of Mansfield, MA, is collaborating with Access Community Action Agency to sponsor a Repair Café on Saturday, 3 October (10:00 AM-2:00 PM).

Area residents are invited to bring in items needing repair, including books, bicycles, electronics, electrical and mechanical items, clothing, and small wooden furniture. Knife sharpening will also be available. Skilled volunteers will be on hand to both fix items and to teach repair skills.

The Repair Café is free (except for the cost of replacement parts, if necessary). In addition, two “DIY” clinics will be offered: Lamps 101(10:30 AM) and Bicycle Repair (11:30 AM).
