It's Spring Cleaning time! Chances are you'll discover something in the hidden recesses of a closet that needs fixing. Bring it out into the sunshine. Bring it to Repair Cafe!
On Saturday May 19th we will celebrate our 5th anniversary in New Paltz!
At 1:00 PM we will break from our repairs to mark the anniversary. Even if you don't have an item to be repaired, we hope you will drop by!
It seems each event brings new surprises, thanks to specialized skills “hidden” in our community.
- Felicia Casey will be with us for Doll repairs--she is a real expert, so you can feel comfortable bringing her your old or very special dolls.
- Saugerties author Vernon Benjamin will offer “wordsmithing” for any type of writing, letter or document brought to him. “I have done a range of technical writing, testimony, reports, news stories, fiction, nonfiction, poetry and drama. Showing others how I handled aspects of this writing might be useful.” Vernon is well-known for The History of the Hudson River Valley.
- Vince Murray will again bring his welding truck and offer metal repairs. Where else are you going to find that? (Weather permitting, as the welding must be done out-of-doors).
- Don Grice will be doing PHOTO RESTORATION--bring your damaged or faded photograph. Don will work his magic and will email your restored image to you.
- Please note that we don't offer sharpening services (knives & tools) or bicycle repairs at our New Paltz Repair Cafes.
- If you want to bring something you're not sure we can repair, please check with us ahead of time. Call John at 646-302-5835 or message us through our facebook page: Repair Cafe Hudson Valley.
