Skillshare: Repair Cafe @ Side Street

Repair Café is a free Saturday morning event in Pasadena and Altadena that links local handy people to folks in need of repairs of all kinds: clothing, appliances, electronics, bikes, jewelry, furniture. The Repair Café is inspired by the philosophy of a Sharing Economy. We share our time, skills and talents to build a more vibrant local community, one repair at a time.
