Event Details

What's a Fix-It Clinic?
Is there a fallen hem in your favorite shirt? Did your blender suddenly stop working? Is your child's toy a little worse for the wear? Bring these items and more to the Fix-It Clinic where volunteer coaches with repair know-how will be available to teach you how to fix your item.
Fix-It Clinics are all about do-it-together hands-on disassembly, troubleshooting and repair knowledge. Fix-It Clinic attendees are expected to be active participants in trying to fix their items with guidance from our coaches. Attendees should plan to stay with their items. Dropping off of items for repair will not be permitted.

What should I bring?
Your broken stuff and a desire to learn how to fix it! However, please note that we have a limit of two items for repair per visit. Sewing machines and other tools will be available for you to use, but you can also bring your own machines and tools if you prefer. If you have a replacement part, missing button, a fabric patch, matching thread, etc. that you suspect might help you fix your item, please bring it with you. At this Fix-It Clinic, you can learn how to fix almost anything! Including:


Clothing


Jewelry


Accessories


Toys


Small Appliances


Electronics



Who can attend?
All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

How do I sign up?
Choose up to two tickets based on the item(s) you plan to bring and when you'll arrive. One ticket = one item. If you are registering for other family members, you may select up to two tickets per attending individual; please register tickets under the name of person who will be working on the item. If the specific ticket you are looking for is sold out, though we can't guarantee availability of our coaches, you are welcome to come to the clinic with your item and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Can I volunteer at the clinic?
We are always looking for individuals with repair skills to become Fix-It Coaches! To sign up as a repair coach for our January Clinic, visit our volunteer sign-up platform online and claim a spot.
