Event description

Description

In a world where most things are discarded, we believe there’s value in the ability for individuals to fix things themselves. In response to a growing movement of reuse and recycle, Fuquay Coworking has setup a “Fix-It Lab” to serve as a hub of knowledge and creativity, focused around the challenge of finding solutions to fixing broken items people choose to bring in.

We are not a repair service, but a meeting space where individuals come together to repair broken items. In general, please only bring items that you can carry with you. Large items like TVs, Washer/Dryers, and such are not appropriate for this type of event.

Members of Fuquay Coworking, including volunteers, dedicate time and expertise to assisting individuals find solutions to their broken items. While there is no guarantee that every item can be fixed, the experience is still more than worth the effort.

We provide this benefit to the Fuquay-Varina community as a way to give-back and support the local families. The Fix-It Lab is free of charge, but a voluntary donation is appreciated, and will help to provide tools and misc supplies to keep the program going.

Things Volunteers May Be Able to Assist You In Fixing:

  • Electrical Appliances
  • Clothing
  • Furniture
  • Housewares
  • Bicycles
  • Toys
  • Kitchenware
  • Certain Types of Electronics
  • Small Gadgets
  • Small Crafts Projects (Repairs)
  • Basic Car Repairs (Bulbs, Fuses, Wipers)

Fix-It Lab” Events & Workshops will be posted on the Fuquay Coworking Events Page, and are open to the public.

*Certain repairs may require specific parts or materials, which would be the responsibility of the owner to obtain or bring. We make no guarantee that your item(s) can or will be repaired.
