Fixit in Fremont: April 1

We held Fixit Clinic CXXV (125) at the frightful Fremont Library on Halloween, 2015 and saw some scary appliances...

Including this terminator-like skeletal sewing machine (pretty scary looking, but we fixed it.)


We're happy to report that we're returning for an encore Fixit Clinic CCII (202) on April 1, where we hope to see many other things "spring" back to life in the spirit of the season.

Hope to see you there; costume optional. But do follow the instructions below and register so we know you're coming.

Fixit Clinic CCII (202) Fremont Library

Returning to the Fremont Library: we look forward to seeing you at this Fixit Clinic!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Celebrating repair through do-it-together hands-on STEM-oriented fix-n-learn community-based discovery and disassembly: you 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.

So bring your broken, non-functioning things -- electronics, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, fabric items, etc.-- for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We'll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether we fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked.
