What, again? Yes again! And again and again until there's no breakery to fixery! With its sustainable, energy-efficient facility, lots of outdoor space, plenty of parking, and bucolic setting, the Hitchcock Center is always one of our favorite places to do Repair. Bring us your poor lamps, your tired blenders, your choked lawnmower air filters … Continue reading July Fixery in Amherst!
We'll be at New City Brewery from 1pm to 4:30pm on Sunday, the 24th of June. The weather looks like we might be fending off a passing thunderstorm or two, but that's fine. I'm pretty sure the building is grounded. We're bringing the tools, the volunteers, and our trademark friendly can-do attitude. You bring the … Continue reading Easthampton June Repair!
I could have sworn that I uploaded this two weeks ago. My web page tells me I'm wrong! Holy carp! We're spending Earth Day at the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst, from noon to around 3:30pm. This is one of our favorite spots to work; the space is large and bright and flexible, … Continue reading Earth Day Repair in Amherst!
We've added Abandoned Building Brewery in Easthampton to our list of hosting venues! Sunday, March 25th is the date. We're starting our event a little earlier than normal, from 9am to 12:30pm (they'll start pouring beer at 11:00am). Hopefully enough people show up and we have enough fun that they have us back again and … Continue reading Repair Public at Abandoned Building!
Come back to the place that started it all: Seymour, the Pub in beautiful downtown Greenfield, MA for yet more fixery of brokenthings! Our very first free repair event was February 19th 2017. Just over one year later, we're celebrating the occasion by... well, just doing more of the same darned thing! The date is … Continue reading First Year Annifixery!
One of the things we run into is the occasional repair that can't be tested (or even finished!) at an event. We desperately want to know: Did it work? Does it blend? Will it cook, chop, sew, brew, cut, chop, or plow? We fixed a snow blower once, but that was back in August, so … Continue reading A Call for Feedback!
Okay, I get it, I'm bad at publicity. I'm working on it! First thing's first: We've got an event happening tomorrow at the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst, from noon to 4pm. Check out the calendar page for details. Somebody please remind me next year not to schedule the January event during a … Continue reading January 2018: Happy New Repair!
Do you have some treasured artifact that needs mending? How cool would it be to be able to re-gift something that got fixed, or that you learned how to fix, through members of your community? Now's your chance. Now's the time! Repair Public, this Sunday, the 26th of November, at Seymour the Pub in Greenfield … Continue reading Give the gift of Fixery!
I basically run Repair Public as a really weird hobby. In the right hands, I'm sure many people could run it better, hold bigger events, fix more things. This is just what I feel able to offer with the time and resources at my command. I'm not in it for the compliments or recognition (though … Continue reading It’s cheaper than skiing.
The Hitchcock Center and its staff were amazing! We're going to be doing events there quarterly. Along with the quarterly events up at Seymour the Pub in Greenfield, we need one more regular quarterly venue so Ben can relax a little bit on the planning. Here's a quick list on what we fixed at the … Continue reading Sustainability Repair Review
