Repair Cafe #7

Our 7th Darebin Repair Cafe. We are back where we started- The Bridge Preston for our first anniversary Repair cafe!

Book in via Eventbrite to have an item repaired. Expect to have one item looked at so everyone gets a fair go. It might be possible to have more but you will go back into the queue.

Repairs on: items needing glueing, small machines, toys, clothes, broken zips, electrical & electronics including sewing machine/overlockers

Email us a photo of your repair with description of what needs fixing so we can check with fixers if it is doable and whether parts need to be purchased beforehand.

We’d love some help with organising/supporting the event and are always on the lookout for more fixers- please get in touch at transitiondarebin@gmail.com

Bring a keep cup and a few coins for refreshments – Moon Rabbit cafe will be open on the day onsite with food and drinks for purchase.

There is street parking.

Darebin Repair Cafe is part of the International Repair Cafe Foundation and is kindly supported by the City of Darebin

When: Sunday 26 May, 10 am to 1 pm

Where: The Bridge Preston, 220 High Street Preston

Fix-It Monthly Session – June

It’s Back! Our Newlands fix – it mend it Monthly session. Come Join Us.

This is an informal session, where people can bring their own items that need mending (and whatever supplies they need for it) and mend them themselves in good company.

How great will it be to be able to use those things in the back of the cupboard!

When: Thursday June 6, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Where: Preston – contact 0468 963 868.

We will start as a lounge room event & then see if it moves to a different venue.

Note we LOVE Repair Cafes where volunteers fix things for you. This is different – this is where we make the time to fix/mend our own things – to make it a priority 🙂

Food Swaps – Northcote

The next Northcote food swap will be on Saturday June 8, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at 251 High St Northcote in the side garden of the church.

Food Swaps are an occasion to meet your community, talk about gardens and sustainability and swap excess produce from your garden, or something you made in your kitchen. You bring some and get to take some away as with all good swaps.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…
