Repairee at the World’s Biggest Repair Cafe

I was so please that I was able to get my hairdryer fixed at the Repair Café. It really made me think about the impact that getting just one thing repaired can have.

Repairee at the World’s Biggest Repair Cafe

Absolutely great to have a fresh pair of eyes looking at [my sewing machine]… It saved me money and the planet.

Thank you so much for having me there at the event, it was such a wonderful thing to be part of and I had a warm fuzzy feeling for long after. It even prompted a very interesting 2 hour conversation with my children on Sunday morning!

Attendee at the World’s Biggest Repair Cafe

Inspirational visit and thought-provoking use of new technology and affordable devices to save energy.

Open Eco Homes visitor

The people that work in the shop said they will miss him (my robot) as people walking passed wanted selfies with him. He started great communication with people passing by and the shop staff.
