FIX MIX and Swap Shop

DATE
Mon, May 5, 2014
TIME
5:30pm - 7:30pm

Join us in the fight against planned obsolescence at FIX MIX! The Fix Mix is a social gathering where we use our skills and repair stuff that might otherwise be tossed into a landfill. We mend clothes, re-wire lamps, and research and repair all sorts of items. You can learn how to fix stuff if you don't already know how.
Bring your broken items from home. Together with the specialists you will start making repairs. It’s an ongoing learning process. If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job. You can also get inspired at the reading table – by leafing through books on repairs and DIY.
The Swap Shop is a place to trade your good condition items (under 3 lbs or smaller than a bread box) that might be desirable for other participants, including a variety of useful items such as small housewares, seasonal clothing, office supplies, potted plants, musical instruments, etc.
