Our first pilot Repair Cafe

Our first Repair Cafe took place on 17th November 2012 at the fantastically quirky Bom-Bane’s (http://bom-banes.com/)

The theme was sewing and textile repairs and a good crowd turned up and got busy repairing and chatting. We were pleased to have Cat Fletcher from Freegle (http://www.ilovefreegle.org/) join us for the session.
