Repair Coaches Needed For Fix It Cafe

Are you a gadget geek? A tinker fairy? Do you like to take things apart just to put them back together? Do you enjoy meeting new people and helping others? If so, join us at the Glasgow Bank Barn for Fix It Café!

Help to diagnose problems with everyday household items, figure out if repair is possible, and either help to fix it or let the owner know how it can be fixed.

We are currently looking for volunteers with sewing machine repair knowledge. The most common problem received at Fix It Cafe is related to thread tension. If you are interested, please contact 302-395-5496 or sign up at newcastlede.gov/volunteer.

Our volunteers meet every third Saturday at 9:30 a.m. for set up and the event runs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Grab your tools, if you have them, and meet us at the Bank Barn!

Fix It Cafe will return Spring 2019! Upcoming dates are:
- Aug 17, Sep 21, Oct 19, Nov 16, Dec 21

Volunteers should have experience in diagnosing problems with and repairing small household items. Patience and the ability to communicate clear repair instructions to the owners are a plus. Help us help the owner gain some experience and keep repairable items out of our landfills.
