Welcome Guardian Readers!

Welcome Guardian Readers*: Want to try fixing something from home like Anya above**? Here’s how it works: show your item to the global assembly of community repairers and get suggestions for things to try; then we move items/participants and repairers to Zoom breakout rooms to implement the suggestions and, hopefully, fix the items.

We also have the Global Fixers Discord Server for synchronous/asynchronous around-the-clock around-the-world repair.

Sign up with things to fix at http://bit.ly/fixitcheckin to get scheduled for an upcoming Intergalactic Fixit Clinic (or to set up repair via Discord); and please encourage your family, friends and neighbors around the globe to sign up too. (And remember: we can look at large things like dishwashers, TVs and furniture now.)

Hope to see you at an upcoming Fixit Clinic (virtually, that is!)


*Fixit Clinic was mentioned in today’s Guardian: scroll down towards the bottom of the article:

...Finally, after reading our hugely popular (but quite ancient) repair cafe story, Anya Hart Dyke in Scotland had a further tip.

“Given current restrictions, it would be good to mention the amazing Fixit Clinic team who help with repairs via Zoom. I did a session with them for my hand-held blender last weekend and they were amazing. It’s all free, of course.”

We’ll be expecting great things from that blender, Anya. Whisk like the wind.
