REPAIRS MAY INCLUDE: Sewing by hand or machine (mend, patch, darn, buttons — sorry, no hems or alterations). Sharpen scissors & knives. Tinker with and rewire electronics and lamps; no TVs. Vacuum repair, computer diagnostics, ceramics gluing, & basic jewelry repair. Furniture and wood gluing and repair. Nearly anything that can be fixed with adhesives or fasteners, such as basic shoe repair. **This list may change as we confirm our volunteers **

BRING WITH YOU: Replacement item such as new zipper or electric cord/plug. If your electronics requires testing after repair, bring what is needed to do that (e.g. light bulb, DVD).
