Can it be fixed?

Not sure what you should bring to the spring 2019 Repair Café on March 30? Check the list below.

Please remember that repair work is not guaranteed. Our fixers are all volunteers, and most of them are not professional repair persons – they’re just really awesome folks who like to help out!

Bring it

We can fix small household appliances, clean clothing and textiles, bicycles, jewelry, toys, small furniture, dishes, and other household items.

Below is a sample list of some items we’ve fixed in the past…

backpack coat lamp speaker
banjo doll necklace stroller
battery charger dress Olympic torch sweater
bike earrings pajamas table
blender electric burner pants tape recorder
bracelet glasses picture frame tea kettle
Buddha statue hair dryer purse toaster
camel saddle jacket sewing machine turntable
CD player jeans shorts tutu
chair jewelry box skirt umbrella
clock juicer snow pants vacuum

Specialists at your service

Charlottesville Community Bikes will be on site to help you repair and maintain your bike.

Top Notch Computers will offer advice, tune-ups and other simple services for your PC and Mac.

We’ll try

We don’t currently have expert fixers on board for these items, but we’re happy to take a look if you think it might just need some glue or a minor tune-up.

clocks & watches sewing machines
musical instruments shoes
sports equipment

Please note: we will not have expert tool sharpeners on site this time. But we do have a handy tool-sharpening gadget that you’re welcome to try out.

Do NOT bring

Due to the risks involved in servicing these items, our volunteers do not evaluate or repair microwave ovens, televisions, or gasoline powered equipment.

  1. Last spring (2018) I saw people sharpening gardening tools such as hand-held cutters. Will that service be available on March 30 at the Repair Cafe?
