Cville TimeBank Repair Café

Don't toss it – FIX it!

Toss it? No Way! FIX IT!

At a Repair Café, folks bring their broken stuff to be repaired by volunteers for free. It’s a fun, friendly way to keep perfectly good stuff out of the landfill and spend some quality time together as a community.

Don’t toss it. FIX it!

Chairs. Fans. Lamps. Toasters. Bikes. In the Charlottesville area, these are the things most likely to end up in the trash when they break. Let’s make them useful again!

We are unable to hold our Fall 2020 event due to COVID-19 restrictions   😦
BUT……we hope you’ll join us for our first
VIRTUAL Repair Café!
Saturday, October 17   1:00 – 3:00 pm

Got broken stuff?

  • Sign up here to get something fixed.
    You’ll be matched with a fixer who will confer with you over the phone or video chat. If hands-on help is necessary, the fixer may volunteer to do the repair and arrange drop-off, or refer you to a potential local repair source.
  • Join us – virtually! – on Zoom on Saturday, October 17
    Beginning at 1:00 pm, our repair team will demonstrate common repairs, and troubleshoot more complex issues.
