Sustainable Saratoga Hosts Repair Café Feb. 9

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Sustainable Saratoga and the Saratoga Springs Public Library are hosting another Repair Café. Repair Café is a free community event with the goals of repairing broken objects to extend their life, keeping things out of landfills, and fostering an appreciation for the art of repairing things. The event will take place on Feb. 9 from beginning at noon and until 3 p.m. in the Harry Dutcher Community Room. 

Various volunteer repair coaches will be available to help repair your broken items free of charge. Tools and basic materials will also be on hand. People visiting the Repair Café will bring along their broken items from home. Lamps, clocks, hair dryers, clothes and textile (repairs and minor alterations), dolls, small kitchen appliances, jewelry, wooden toys and small furniture. Most things are welcome and can more than likely be repaired with the help of a knowledgeable Repair Café coach. We cannot guarantee we can fix everything, but we are pretty sure you will have a good time interacting with your neighbors! 

Bring what you can carry (limit of 2 items), and let a repair coach help you fix it.
