The second Repair Cafe (Santa’s workshop) took place on Dec 3rd at St James the Apostle Church from 9am to 1pm. We had more than 10 volunteer fixers and about 35 visitors. More than 25 items were fixed which otherwise would have been thrown in the landfill. Visitors and volunteers had a great time and there was a great community feeling. This event was sponsored by Meridian Credit Union and lunch for our volunteers was provided by The Cornerstone, who we would like to thank! Also a huge thank you goes to all volunteers who made this event happen and visitors for their support!
You can see more photos of the event here.
Visit us at the next Repair Cafe on Feb 18th! And we are looking for more volunteers!
The first Guelph Repair Cafe was held on August 20th, 2016 at St James the Apostle church from 9 to 1. Volunteers helped fix broken and damaged clothes, jewelery, bikes, electrical appliances, wooden items, etc.

The Cafe also featured a Swap Table where participants brought items in good working order that they no longer needed and swaped them for something of equivalent value.
People also had the opportunity to learn more about the Guelph Tool Library which is currently accepting donations of gently used kitchen appliances, gardening tools, arts and crafts tool and hand tools.
