Two Des Moines Repair Cafés have been held. At all of our King County 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.

This repair event - aimed at reducing waste and building community! - is brought to you by King County, with the support of the City of Des Moines and the King County Library System.

If you have questions about Des Moines Repair Cafés or any King County repair events, contact Tom Watson by e-mail or at 206-477-4481, or visit the Facebook event page external link for this Des Moines event. Thanks!
