Repair Cafe

The NRV TimeBank and Habitat for Humanity of the NRV are teaming up with the Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech to present a Repair Cafe on Saturday, April 14th at the Habitat ReStore, 1675 N Franklin St, Christiansburg VA.


A Repair Cafe is a free event that promotes repair as an alternative to throwing things away. Visitors bring their broken items in need of repair and the event provides the tools, materials and expertise to help get them back into shape. Volunteers will be on board to fix small electronics, wooden furniture, clothing, and toys, as well as provide knife and tool sharpening. Members of the NRV Master Gardeners Association will  be on hand to help with house plant problem diagnosis and repotting. Students from the Myers-Lawson School of Construction will be making planter pots that visitors can obtain for a donation, and the public are also encouraged to bring in their own pots.

The Repair Cafe will only consider repairing reasonably sized items. Sleeper Sofas, large wardrobes and dressers, etc. will not be admitted.

If you have questions or would like to volunteer for this event email us at
