What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a bike when the wheel runs out of alignment? Or with a sweater full of moth holes? MAxT is organizing New Hampshire's first Repair Cafe on the 2nd Saturday of each month to help you fix what's broken.
Our volunteer repair experts will be available to help you make all possible repairs. Tools and materials will also be on hand. You can bring your broken items from home. Repair stations will include small electronics, clothing, bikes, furniture, toys and jewelry - anything that is broken is welcome and more than likely can be repaired!
By promoting repairs, MAxT MAkerspace wants to help reduce mountains of waste, put neighbors in touch with each other in a new way and discover that a lot of know-how and practical skills can be found close to home.
The event is free but donations to the repair cafe are encouraged to keep this event going.
About Repair Cafe:
The Repair Cafe concept arose in the Netherlands in 2009, and was formulated by MArtine Postma, at the time an Amsterdam based journalist/publicist. In 2010, she started the Repair Cafe Foundation (see Repaircafe.org). This foundation provides support to local groups around the world wishing to start their own Cafe, including the one at MAxT Makerspace.
