Bring your small household items including clothing! We want to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money. Free to the public!

Our experienced all-purpose fixers and sewing fixers will try to repair or mend your items, and can also help you learn how to fix them next time.

You must be present during the repair. There is no assurance an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more.

Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles you bring in for mending should be washed first.

Please sign up in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, so our fixers can be prepared. For specialized repairs (which many are), please bring any specific parts or materials needed for your repair.

To sign up to attend, or if you have questions, please contact Tom Watson via email or at 206-477-4481.

Thanks to LWTech (external) and the City of Kirkland (external) for co-sponsoring and supporting the Kirkland Repair Cafés! At the first repair café at LWTech on Feb. 4, 2017, we worked on 116 items and repaired more than 80 percent of them. Watch this one-minute video from that event (YouTube) by Phan Tran with LWTech.
