was a fairly quiet but we still got a fair few things fixed…
This lovely vintage vanity case needed a bit of TLC.
The lining was re – glued where it had come away from the case (due to the age of the glue).
Another vintage item, brought in by Ruth was this lovely leather jacket
which had its buttons sewn back on.
A draw which had its handle come loose
was glued back on by Babs using two-part epoxy
One chap brought in a temperamental hedge strimmer for some advice
along with his own tools.
With some guidance from Mattia the device was taken apart to access the switch.
After a bit of a struggle to get to the right part it was fixed.
It will be tested in action to see if the problem is totally resolved.
Eva brought along her radio
Mattia diagnosed that the capacitor was the problem
and went about replacing it.
I brought along a favourite cardigan that had a frayed sleeve.
Blue wool had been used to prevent it from fraying further.
Tom went about showing me how to reknit it with orange wool
to create this lovely visible mend.A quick fix at the end of this session on one chaps blend left him rather chuffed.
We love it when people bring in their handmade projects to show us
& this is hand knitted Noah’s ark was no exception.
The lapping waves at he bottom of the are an especially nice detail!
