Jefferson County's first Repair Cafe was in February 2020 and we are planning another in-person event for March 2022! But until then, our Repair events are going remote!
JeffCo Repair's first Drop-off event will be December 11th, 2021 from 1-3pm at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center Museum portico (the building next to the canteen, at Fort Worden).
How it will work:
Register your item for a Drop-off event and attend with your broken belongings in tow.
A good rule of thumb: any item brought in for repair must be easily carried by one person.
After the items are dropped off, volunteer fixers will pick up your items and repair them off-site. Volunteers are not expected to spend more time on items than they would during a normal Repair event, (~30 minutes) unless they would like to.
In most cases, your belongings will be ready to be picked up at our following Drop-off/Pick-up event, approximately one month later.
If the repair is outside of the scope of the fixer, they may be able to recommend temporary solutions or a professional in our area that could provide the needed services.
We are unable to work on:
Microwaves and gas engines.
Currently, we are also unable to work on bikes.
Any item can be refused a repair attempt for any issue such as size or leaking oil, ink, etc.
