WARWICK — The Repair Cafe - the free community meeting place to bring a beloved but broken item to be repaired - returns to the Warwick Senior Center on Saturday, Jan. 20.

The cafe is staffed by repair coaches who volunteer their time for this non-profit project. It’s open to everyone no matter where they live.

The cafe is about fixing things - lamps and small electrics, clothing and textiles, soft toys, jewelry, bikes, things made of wood, knife and tool sharpening - together.

There is a limit of two items per person.

Most repairs are free, although are at cost charges for lamp and bike parts.

Raison d'etre

The mission behind the Repair Cafe is:

• To transform our throw-away economy, one beloved item at a time.

• To reduce how much stuff goes into the waste stream.

• To preserve traditional repair know-how and skills and pass them on.

• To show people who have this knowledge that they are valued.

• To feed curiosity about "how things work."

• To build community and sustainability.

Essential information

Repair Cafes are take place on the third Saturday every other month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Upcoming cafes are scheduled for March 17, May 19, July 21, Sept. 15 and Nov. 17.
