Des Moines Repair Café

Two Des Moines Repair Cafés have been held. All upcoming King County repair events will be posted on the main repair events web page as they are scheduled.

At these repair events, bring your small items, including clothing! We want to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money. Free to the public!

Our experienced general fixers and sewing fixers will try to repair or mend your items, and can also help you learn how to fix them next time.

You must be present during the repair. There is no assurance an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more.

Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles that you bring in for mending should be washed first.

All King County repair events are first-come, first-served, with no appointments or set times. But please contact us in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, so our fixers can be prepared. For specialized repairs (which many are), please bring any specific parts or materials needed for your repair.

To ask about your repair, or if you have questions about this event or any King County repair events, contact Tom Watson by e-mail or at 206-477-4481. Thanks!
