Want to repair that old bike, lamp, or dress? Looking to save household items from the landfill? Bring them to the Brookline Village Library on Saturday, May 26, 1-4 pm for a Fixit Clinic.

Fixit Clinic is a troubleshooting and discovery workshop where everyone’s helping everyone else fix their stuff: you are expected to actively participate in the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of your item so that you leave fully empowered to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large.

You bring your bikes, skateboards, toys, clothing, textile, computers, kitchen appliances, jewelry, and small electronic devices.  The Fixit Clinic will provide tools and volunteer coaches.

– Bring the broken item with all parts necessary to recreate the symptoms (carry-in only: no oversize items)
– Bring any parts and tools you already own that might be helpful (e.g. hand tools, sewing supplies)
– Come ready to clearly describe what’s wrong and what you’ve tried
– Come eager to learn and to share your skills and knowledge with others

(P.S.: If you’d like to be a Fixit Coach (first timers and fixing families always welcome!) sign up here: http://goo.gl/kwVNlv)
