After more than a two-year gap, the Repair Café is back! This was always one of our favourite events, and now that it's safer to gather again, we are looking forward to getting back into the swing of regular repair events, learning new skills and fixing items that would otherwise have gone in the landfill.

During this 2 hour event, we will have community members on hand who can help you with your items that need fixing. If you have a small appliance or piece of clothing or something else that needs fixing, please bring it in and have it repaired - for free :)

Thanks to our awesome team of volunteer "fixers", more than half of all the broken items that are brought in get repaired! Some of the items that have been repaired in the past are: toaster ovens, curling irons, clocks, lamps, jeans, purses, coats, chairs, radios, microwaves, etc.

We are hosting the Repair Café at Reimagine AND at London Public Library branches! Please carefully note the location of the event you are registering for.

  • Jalna Library Branch - Thursday, November 3 (1119 Jalna Boulevard, London ON N6E 3B3)
  • East London Library Branch - Wednesday, November 23 (2016 Dundas Street East, London ON N5Z 1R1)
  • Reimagine - Wednesday, December 7

The Repair Cafe being held at the East London Library is part of the Green in the City annual event series offered in partnership with the City of London, London Environmental Network and London Public Library.

Between 4 pm and 8 pm, meet neighbours, learn about local initiatives, and connect with others interested in a more sustainable community. And from 6 to 8 pm bring your small appliance, clothing, or other item that needs fixing, and have it repaired for free while you sit with your fixer and learn repair skills.

Interested in being a “fixer”? See here for more details of what that involves and to complete a short volunteer application form.

Reimagine Co is located at 206 Piccadilly St in the heart of downtown London - just west of Richmond Row, next to Kal Tire. We have free parking in front of our building, as well as bike parking, and we're easily accessible by bus and via the TVP.
