Handy with a wrench?
NARROWSBURG, NY — The Repair Cafe Tusten is a neighborhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to throwing items away. In preparation for its first iteration, on Saturday January 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tusten Town Hall, organizer Jill Padua is looking for volunteers.
Residents of the Upper Delaware Region are invited to bring their broken items and fix them on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers. The cafe is still looking for more volunteers who have skills to offer, especially those who know how to fix bicycles, stuffed toys, jewelry and knife and tool sharpening. Additionally, Padua is looking for volunteers to provide lunch, dessert, or beverages like coffee and tea.
