CVSan’s Fixit Clinic & Clothing Swap ‘N Sew

Saturday, February 9, 2019   

1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Castro Valley Library (3600 Norbridge Avenue)  

Join CVSan, on the final day of Zero Waste Week 2019, for a Fixit Clinic (community repair workshop) and Clothing Swap ‘N Sew at the Castro Valley Library!


Fixit Clinic

Bring your non-functioning or unusable items (electronics, small appliances, computers, toys, bicycles, etc.) for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair.  Fixit Coaches and fellow attendees will be available for consultation on broken items.  A workspace, specialty tools, and guidance will be provided to help you troubleshoot issues with your item.

Please note that the Fixit Clinic is designed to provide a place for you to learn how to fix the item yourself.  The spirit of the event is that participants are involved with the repair of their item and take away that knowledge. Items cannot be dropped off for repair. Participants are put to work troubleshooting repair options and will be able to use volunteer coaches as a resource to fix their items. Volunteer coaches may partner with other coaches or recommend online resources to help guide participants through the repair process.

Whether an item is repaired or not, you’ll have an opportunity to meet repair experts for guidance and learn about resources for repairing items. Children must always be monitored by an adult.

Swap ‘N Sew

Bring your clean, gently worn but no longer needed clothes for the clothing “Swap.” Do you need to mend something? Bring your fabric items and your sewing machine and our Fixit Coaches will provide you with guidance.
