If you’re not familiar with Repair Cafés, we’re part of an international organization that holds events where community members can bring items that need fixing (such as lamps, bikes, toys, clothing, etc.) and work with volunteers there to help repair the items. There is no charge for this service, with the exception of bike and lamp parts which can be purchased at our cost. The goal is to reduce waste and educate our community on how to repair things when they break. This event is held in the Borough of Downingtown but is open to all. At our event in July, we had visitors from Chester Springs, Coatesville, Downingtown, Exton, Glen Mills, Glenmoore, Malvern, and Pottstown. We repaired a total of 23 items.

September’s Repair Coaches have expertise in the following areas:

Soft Toys – Dolls & Stuffed Animals

Computers & Electronics

Knife & Tool Sharpening

Mechanical & Electrical

Things Made of Wood

Clothing & Textiles



There is a limit of two items per person, but feel free to return to future events with more items. Our remaining 2023 dates are:

November 11, 2023

2024 dates to be announced soon!
