Third annual Skill Share and Repair Cafe

  • Silver Spring Civic Building One Veterans Plaza Silver Spring, MD (map)

We are now calling for proposals for our next Skill Share/Repair Cafe on February 10. The deadline to submit proposals is December 31.

This year, in addition to talks and Q&A tables, we will be hosting a Repair Cafe at our Skill Share. We did our first Repair Cafe at this year's Montgomery County Greenfest, http://www.sstimebank.org/news/2018/6/4/our-first-repair-cafe-is-a-hit?rq=Repair%20Cafe). At Repair Cafes, volunteer repairers with particular skill sets (this could be you!) will be available to help members of the community fix items that are broken, or help them assess what needs repair, or how to re-purpose if it is beyond repair. Are you a tinkerer or fixer? Could you help hem a pair of paints, or re-glue a wooden box? Can you restring a necklace, or help fix a small appliance? Do you have another skill to share? If so, please let us know! Based upon the skills of our fixers, we will publicize what types of items folks can bring to the Cafe!

Please fill out this form to register your interest in sharing a skill or serving as a repair person at the event. You may submit more than one idea, but please only submit one at a time. After submitting this form, click on "Submit another" to begin your second submission.
