Fix-It Clinics

Did your blender suddenly stop working? Is your child's toy a little worse for the wear? Is there a fallen hem in your favorite shirt?  At a Fix-It Clinic, you can learn to repair these items and more alongside skilled volunteer coaches with repair know-how. Fix-It Austin aims to foster community and educate citizens about the value of repair and reuse. 

Repair keeps items out of landfills and fosters a more circular economy. Help Austin reach our goal of Zero Waste by 2040: attend, volunteer, or host a Fix-It Clinic near you!
