Mini Repair Demo

Jun 27, 2017

Repair Cafe Pasadena is a marvelously community-organized and community-focused foundation. It’s based on an idea initiated by Martine Postma in the Netherlands in 2007. Quite simply, Repair Cafe is a “bi-monthly meeting of repair people and people who need things repaired.” Neighbor helping neighbor not to simply throw away that toaster, those pair of pants, or that iPad, but get it repaired. Repair Cafe’s manta is “Throw it away? No way!”

Repair Cafe help is free of charge, though satisfied customers are always welcome to tip the help!

On Saturday, July 1, Repair Cafe offers a “Mini Repair Demo” in Old Pasadena at the Patagonia store.

Repair Cafe will have a demo table at Patagonia (Old Town Pasadena store)… A few key crew members will be there talking to people and showing repair in action.

What this means is Repair Cafe members will be instructing folks on how to start your own Repair Cafe in your community.
