It's time for our Skill Share and Repair Cafe!

The Silver Spring Timebank is hosting its 3rd annual Skill Share along with an added Repair Cafe new this year!

Sunday, February 10
Silver Spring Civic Center
One Veterans Plaza, downtown Silver Spring

This event will promote our timebank's talents to the entire community. It is FREE and open to the public.

If you're not sure what a Skill Share or Repair Cafe is, check out the video from our January 2018 Skill Share and our May 2018 Repair Cafe at the Montgomery GreenFest.

We have all NEW speakers and expert table topics for our February 2019 event. See below for the line up* of all including several repair experts. You can pop in for one or two talks and visit a few ask-the-expert/repair tables or stay for the entire event to absorb it all. 

We hope you will be inspired to join the SSTB, but there's no pressure to do so. We just want you to enjoy yourself and learn something new for the New Year! Bring your friends and family and please forward this email to others.

Also new this year: babysitting for up to 12 children. We’ll have childcare provided by Black Tie Babysitting but advanced reservations are required. Click on this link to reserve your spot.
