About the event

Volunteers will help you troubleshoot your broken thing, and provide a prescription for how it can be repaired. When possible, volunteers will help you make on-site, real-time repairs—and send you home with a fixed thing. For other repairs, like those that require specialized replacement parts, the prescription will guide you through what's needed to repair the item.

@Kiddos and doggos: Bring your sick and wounded stuffed animals to the Stuffed Animal Hospital. Volunteers will be ready to give your stuffed animal special care, like replacing missing stuffing and patching any holes, so you can keep playing with your stuffie.

There is no fee for participating in this event, but there will be local coffee cart, drink, and food vendors onsite offering goodies for purchase. Get something for you and, perhaps, for a volunteer? It is a repair "café" after all! Come enjoy a treat while repairing and learning.

By connecting people who know how to repair with people who have things that need repair, we can ensure more things are fixed and used, instead of discarded and replaced.
