Pat Clary at Repair Cafe

Pat Clary works on a brass watering can at Repair Cafe.

ASTORIA — The next Repair Cafe takes place 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 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. At our monthly event we work on bicycles, toys, clothing, scissors, knives, household appliances, garden tools or just something that needs to be glued (no gas engines).

The organization’s goal is to keep 2,000 pounds of reparable items out of the local landfill this year. You would be amazed how the pounds add up each month.

Events are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Join us for repairs, or just come and enjoy watching our volunteers put things back together again.

Questions about an item? Call 503-307-0834. Follow us on Facebook http://facebook.com/repairastoria
