Attend an Event

PLEASE READ: Fixit Clinic is staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches and is not a hands-off free repair service. Fixit Clinic is a troubleshooting and discovery workshop: you are expected to 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.

REPAIR is not assured: while we do have an excellent track record any specific item can have issues that make it unrepairable or we can exacerbate the problem during our attempts to repair it.

To participate in a Fixit Clinic:
- Bring the broken item with all parts necessary to recreate the symptoms (carry-in only: no oversize items)
- Bring any parts and tools you already own that might be helpful (e.g. hand tools, sewing notions)
- Come ready to clearly describe what’s wrong and what you’ve tried (Tip: advance web research about your item is especially helpful)
- Come eager to learn and to share your skills and knowledge with others

Thanks, and we're looking forward to seeing your smiling face at Fixit Clinic!
