Got something broken gathering dust? We can help with that. Join the Ballard Tool Library and Zero Waste Washington at an upcoming Fix-it Far. Our team of tinkerers, tailors and tool doctors will be at Seattle Makers from 3 to 6 p.m., Oct. 1. Fix-it Fairs are community gatherings bringing neighbors together to provide free repair services while keeping items from the landfill. These hands-on events are open to everyone and provide an empowering opportunity for individuals to learn how to repair items. Bring items in need of repair or mending that might otherwise be thrown away, such as bikes, jewelry, clothing, small appliances, furniture, toys and electronics.
