Belfast Community Works to host repair cafe
BELFAST — Belfast Community Works is hosting a free event that is centered around helping the environment by keeping items out of the landfill and building community. Practical knowledge will be shared over a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake during this repair cafe to be held on Sunday, March 18 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Belfast Free Library.
Volunteers will be on hand to help folks repair their fibers: darn socks, patch knees and elbows in torn clothing, and repair zippers and damaged stuffed animals. There will also be an area of tinkerers ready to work with community members to show them how to repair small broken appliances. The public is encouraged to bring in broken "stuff" and any parts that may help them to get their repairs done.
Belfast Community Works is a nonprofit organization. Their mission is to be a shared space for makers, builders, tinkerers, and dreamers of all ages that enriches our community and encourages innovation, creativity, and connections throughout Belfast and beyond.
