Another Repair Cafe success story.

Eva brought her doll house high-chair all the way from Accord to our Repair Cafe at Locust Lawn last week. Erik Hoover helped her to make it right.

Here is the nice note Eva left for us:
"I got my doll chair fixed. I learned how to glue it back together. I also learned how to carefully tape it. It was a great experience!"

Thank you Eva! We hope you will bring your whole doll house to another Repair Cafe 1) so we can see it and 2) so you can do some additional repairs!

We’re happy to be part of the Repair Cafes of the Hudson Valley. Combining the repair revolution with timeless thrift.

We are happy it's Spring!
And we are delighted to share our April schedule of Repair Cafes in the Hudson Valley & Catskills. Note that more details for each are always on our website calendar. www.repaircafehv.org

We welcome the 1st Hastings Repair Cafe in Hastings-on-Hudson! And the 2nd events for Tusten, Newburgh and Red Hook. Once again we will offer "The Timeless Art of Repair" at Locust Lawn Estate in Gardiner: See how things were repaired a hundred years ago, bring something to be repaired today.

Our volunteer "repair coaches" look forward to meeting all of the "repair seekers" who bring things! Share skills, Reduce waste. Make friends.

We invite you to share this news with family and friends in these communities throughout our region! Repair Cafe Schenectady, not on this schedule, has their next on April 6th.

Thank you, Martin for the beautiful photos!
