Register Now for Fall Fix-It Café – October 15
Dedicated to reducing waste and building community, the Vashon Fix-It Café returns Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 10am to 2pm at the Vashon Eagles Club, 18134 Vashon Highway SW.
Advance registration is required to safely stagger fixing sessions and pair you with the right fixer for your job. Complete the simple form on the Fix-It Café website at http://vashonfixit.com/ to be paired with a fixer – or – to volunteer to join our merry band of fixers.
You’ll be given a time to drop off your item (s) and called when the fix is finished. For those missing the good old days of in-person fixing, we’re also offering that option – with mask precautions and social distancing, probably in an outdoor setting. If you’d like to be involved in the fix, select that option on the registration.
Fixers are eager to repair your bicycles, sewing machines, lamps, jewelry, outdoor equipment, vacuums, fans, chairs, tables, tools, music players, blenders, toasters, toys, pants, dresses, purses and bags, electronics, and lots more! Fixing and advice are free to the public, but if parts are needed you may be required to acquire them at cost to complete the fix. Please do not bring in anything that drips, smells or is too heavy for one person to carry.
The Vashon Fix-It Café is hosted by the Vashon Eagles Aerie # 3144 and staffed by members of the Vashon Tool Library (vashontools.org), Vashon Makerspace (https://vashonmakerspace.org/),
Zero Waste Vashon (zerowastevashon.org), and Vashon Island Time Exchange, with support from the King County Eco-Consumer Program.

WHERE: Vashon Eagles Club, 18134 Vashon Highway SW

The Vashon Tool Library is a community resource designed to support and promote shared use of tools on Vashon and Maury Islands. All tools and furnishings have been donated by islanders to benefit the community, and staffing is entirely done by volunteers. Authorized members can borrow any tool from our collection to use in their own projects. Join today!
