Saturday, September 10, 1 – 4 p.m.
Bring your broken small stuff (appliances, electronics, clothing and other textiles, etc.) and work with fixit coaches to take them apart and see whether they can be repaired. This is a wonderful chance for the whole family to learn the ins and outs of stuff. If the first event is successful, there will be fixit clinics at the same time on October 8 and November 5.
