Repair Cafe

Kelly Green fixes a burlap pumpkin for Halloween enthusiast Dina Allen, of Astoria.

ASTORIA — The next Repair Cafe — a monthly event for fixing bicycles, toys, clothing, scissors, knives, household appliances, garden tools or something that just needs to be glued (no gas engines) — takes place 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, at 1010 Duane St.

Repair Cafe is a community of volunteers who repair, sew, sharpen and give expert advice on pretty much anything that is broken, torn, dull or in need of repair.

When you arrive, we will weigh your repairable in hopes of keeping it out of the local landfill and send you to one of our volunteer repairers.

Repair Cafe events are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Join us for repairs or just to enjoy watching our volunteers put things back together again.

If you have questions about an item, call 503-307-0834. Follow us on Facebook facebook.com/repairastoria.
