We've become vicitims of our own success. After more than a year of successful repair events in Cary and Durham, we've outgrown our previous meeting spaces and need a new place to meet. If you or your organization has meeting space available in Durham or Cary, please contact us at repaircafenc@gmail.com. We'd love to talk with you about hosting our unique repair events.

What is
Repair Café?

Repair Cafés are free meeting places and we’re all about repairing things (together). You will find tools and experienced repair specialists to help.

Calling all Fixers!

About Repair Café

What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a toaster that no longer works? Toss it? No way! You can repair it at Repair Café.

We throw away vast amounts of stuff. Even things with almost nothing wrong, and which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair. Lots of people don't consider doing a repair themselves. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill that everyone can learn.

Repair Café is changing all that! We are bringing together people to share skills and solve problems. Valuable practical knowledge is getting passed on. Things are being used for longer and don’t have to be thrown away.

Repairing is better for your wallet and better for the environment. But most of all, Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. Join us and discover how much fun fixing can be!
