TTW Repair Café – Book Now For November!

Posted on 02 November 2021

Book your slot now for our final Repair Café session of the year on Saturday 27th November 10am -1pm & 1.45 -4pm.

Electrical, computer and household repairs are always very popular but this month we are specifically focussing on sharing the skills of our amazing sewing team. They can show you how to use a sewing machine or overlocker, how to knit (very useful skill to have with Winter fast approaching!) or crochet, they can repair soft toys, add zips, mend tears, holes and rips and restyle or upcycle your clothes. Their talents are endless!

Any questions, or if you would like to join our team of repairers, please do email us at: [email protected]

We were really busy yesterday at our Repair Cafe. As ever, some challenges, some things that were impossible to repair, and some that were an absolute joy and brought tears to our eyes (see crochet blanket photo & related story). 

Huge thanks to our wonderful team who work so well together and turn up every month, not quite knowing what they are going to be asked to deal with!
 
Welcome to the team Alex Rose who is working on a sustainability project as part of his Masters Degree in Product Design at Kingston University. We hope to work with Alex to come up with some useful research, based on the types of repairs we have done at the Repair Cafe, what products we find are frequently not able to be repaired and what ones have a high repair success rate.

.... when you have a conversation in the car on the way back from the community allotment about needing a load of woodchip for the muddy pathways and the next thing you know, its being tipped onto your driveway (after spotting someone chipping a tree at the end of the road)! 

Thanks to Rita for helping Al to bag it and to Tracey and Marie for making a great start to spreading it where its needed most.

Whatever would we do without our very willing band of volunteers.
