Fixit Clinic CCXVII (217) Castro Valley Library

The heat wave moving through Northern California this weekend didn't deter the crowds from making their way to the Castro Valley Library for Fixit Clinic CCXVII (217). Among the highlights:

A bunch of sewing machines were fixed or tuned up:


The Bay Area BikeMobile folks braved the heat and were fixing bicycles outside:

We welcomed our youngest Fixit Coach thus far: Fixit Coach extraordinaire Sarah Foster-Peck showed up with her one week old coach-in-training Hazel!

Fixit Clinic CCXV (215) Newark Library

One week, two Fixit Clinics in Northern California, both great! Today's Fixit Clinic at the Newark Library was a ton of fun, and included a full sewing complement and lots of new coaches.
Among the highlights:

Love it when these sisters cooperate in taking apart their tablet:

This hair dryer needed a new thermal fuse: a common problem, an easy fix:

I hope the only place this repaired laptop power plug is going is in the laptop:
