Bring your broken electronics, holey sweaters, and wobbly chairs to the Repair Café. Not only do you get to have an appliance fixed, a wearable item patched, or a vintage item restored, but you also get to learn how to do it yourself as you work side by side with the repair volunteer to complete the task. Repair Café is a grassroots, volunteer-run organization that holds monthly gatherings in the GTHA where “fixers” help visitors learn how to repair items for free. It aims to build a more sustainable society, counter the “throw-away” mindset, and to place value on people who have repair skills and organizations that collaborate and innovate for the common good.
