Bring broken things back to life at

Repair Café
Next Date: Saturday, November 17 (10:00 am to 1:00 pm)
Location: East Gwillimbury Public Library (19300 Centre Steet, Mount Albert)

A Repair Café brings together people with items to repair and volunteer fixers willing to share their skills and tools.  They inspire people to repair items as an alternative to just throwing them away. Everything needed for the repairs are provided by NewMakeIt for free! All you need to do is show up with your broken item.  Please only bring one item per person.
