What do you do with...
Your favorite sweater with a tear in the elbow? A resume that could use an extra set of eyes? A toaster that no longer works? A vacuum that stopped working and has you stumped? You bring it to a Repair Event!

Register your broken belonging for our next Drop-off event! 

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 Drop-off event will be January 15, 2022, from 1-3pm at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center Museum portico (the building next to the canteen, at Fort Worden State Park).

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. 

Register your broken belonging for our next Drop-off event!
