The Fixer Fair celebrated repair! Don’t recycle it, FIX it. Repairing things helps the environment, is more economical, and teaches engineering to adults and kids. Blenders, cell phones, toasters, bikes, art objects, clothes, rice cookers, vacuums, laptops how many items in your home need repair? 

At the Fixer Fair attendees brought things that need repairing and learned how to repair them or find someone who can. 

Local businesses that repair items promoted themselves and performed on-site repairs. There were workshops about how to take apart, maintain and repair things. What do an auto mechanic, a computer technician and a tailor all have in common? They FIXed things, and they can help you fix things too.
