HOW DOES IT WORK?

Visitors bring their broken items from home. Together with the volunteer "fixers" they start making their repairs in the Fix It Fair so it becomes an interactive and ongoing learning process.

Visitors are getting help to do the repair themselves, we provide most materials for common fixes and hands-on instruction.

We make no guarantee of repairs and longer, more in-depth repairs may be referred to a local repair service.


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

This is a FREE event!

Repair advice and materials are free for common fixes. 

However, larger, more specialized repairs (like new brakes on a bicycle or a new zipper in a dress) may require the purchase of additional parts. Due to the nature of this free event, we cannot guarantee that volunteer "fixers" will have the required parts available for purchase or be able to make these repairs in a timely fashion. That being said, we will try our best to help with all your fixes and repairs!
