Have something that needs to be repaired?

Whether it's missing buttons, a crooked stool, a broken photo frame or jewelry with a wacky clasp, bring it to the Repair Café! Over tea and a snack, skilled volunteers will help you through the repair for free! 

What kinds of things can be repaired

Our skilled volunteers should be able to repair...

  • Bikes
  • Furniture (broken stools, chairs, picture frames, etc.)
  • Sewing, patching holes and tears in shirts & jeans
  • Jewelry (missing clasps, broken necklaces or earrings)
  • Extensions cords that need new ends or repaired wire
  • Tools that need a new cord or handle
  • Cordless tools that need to be fixed
  • Wooden boxes that need pieces put back on
  • Toys and board games
  • And more, depending on the individual skills of our volunteers

Goals of the Repair Café

  1. To bring back repair into local society in a modern way;
  2. To maintain repair expertise and to spread this knowledge;
  3. To promote social cohesion in the local community by connecting neighbours from very different backgrounds and with different motives through an inspiring and low-key event.

We are looking for volunteers to help make Pemberton's Repair Café a success. 

  • Can you fix small appliances, sew or mend? 
  • What about repairing jewelry, small furniture, toys? 
  • Would you like to teach people how to repair their items in a relaxed and fun atmosphere?

Volunteer fixers are the backbone of the program. Without them, it wouldn't be possible! 

Interested? Contact Brooke at bcarere@slrd.bc.ca or 604-894-6371 ext 236 to get involved.
