What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a toaster that no longer works? Toss it? No way! You can repair it at Repair Café.

We throw away vast amounts of stuff which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair. Lots of people don't consider doing a repair themselves. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill that everyone can learn.

Repair Café is bringing together people to share skills and solve problems. Valuable practical knowledge is getting passed on. Things are being used for longer and don’t have to be thrown away.

Repair Café NC
Repair Café NC  is a local chapter of the international movement to resist the "throw-away-and-buy-new" solution to broken household items. Our free Triangle-area workshops feature volunteer repair coaches partnering with local residents to find repair solutions for everyday items that have stopped working.

Please Help
Our current fundraiser will support our efforts to become recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit. 

Over the past two years, Repair Café NC has held 17 free repair workshops. We've helped over 300 area residents restore hundreds of items to good working order.  

So far we've been supported almost exclusively by the generosity of our volunteers. We need your help to become a 501(c)3 and establish a structure to continue our work throughout the region.

Please donate today!

Repairing is better for your wallet and better for the environment. But most of all, Repair Café just wants to show how much fun and easy repairing things can be.

Join Us
We have an exciting calendar of upcoming events . Bring an item to repair, volunteer as a repair coach, or just visit and see the spirit of repair in action.  Join us and discover how much fun fixing can be!
