Warwick’s Repair Café will hold a special holiday event on Sun., Nov. 27 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at the Wickham Woodlands Manor, located at 255 State School Rd. The café will be held in conjunction with the “Meet Your Maker Holiday Gift Market.” The event will feature repair coaches, people with superior technical skills who can make basic jewelry, cobbler, lamp, small appliance and guitar repairs.
Repairs available (note that these are different from those offered at the first Repair Café) include: earring wires replaced and clasps fixed; beads replaced, matched, glued or rewired; shoes polished; suede cleaned; holes punched in belts and bags; belts shortened; basic leather stitching; buttons sewn on leather coats; zippers repaired; basic wiring and minor repairs of lamps and other small appliances; rewiring of mirror backs and picture frames; and basic guitar stringing and set up.
Repairs are free except for a charge for lamp replacement parts, but donations are accepted. There is a limit two items per person. To volunteer call Elizabeth at 544-1056 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For information on future Repair Cafes visit www.sustainablewarwick.org.
