Fix-It Clinic
Fix-It Clinic

Need something fixed? Volunteer Fix-It Coaches consult with you on the disassembly, troubleshooting and repair of your item.

We’ll provide workspace, specialty tools and guidance to help you troubleshoot your item. Whether it’s fixable or not, you'll learn how it was made and how it worked.

Common repairs we see include sewing loose hems, broken zippers, popped seams; repairing wobbly chair or table legs; fixing household appliance and electronics.

This event is free and open to the public in partnership with the Utah Recycling Alliance.
