Fix your broken stuff!! Bring your broken electronics, small appliances, computers, toys, etc. for assessment, disassemble, and possible repair.
Bring and fix your broken small electronics, appliances, bikes, and toys (or at least learn more about them) with the help of fixit coaches. A textile/clothing coach will also be available. We provide the workspace, tools, and coaches. This is an all-age do-it-together (D.I.T.) repair event.

We also need coaches! Jacks & Jills of all trades, tinkerers, and sewists are invited to become fixit coaches; all you need is curiosity and a willingness to encourage & help others open up their broken stuff and try to fix it.
