Free fix-it clinic Saturday, volunteers needed!

I know this is a bit late for it, but we’re seeking volunteers for our fix-it clinic! We’ve been holding the fix-it clinics monthly on the third Saturday of each month, and we’ve been getting a decent turnout of fixees. Unfortunately, even our most regular volunteers can’t make it every month, and it would be great if we could add some talent to our pool of lovely helpers. We’ve only got two people fixing tomorrow, and people all over Duluth with broken stuff could really use your help!

Here is a past post of mine that explains what the fix-it clinics are all about.

The fix-it clinic is from 10-3, hosted at Duluth Technology Company at 12 E Superior St (or 9 E Michigan St) below the Electric Fetus. We have coffee and donut holes in the morning, and usually get pizza at lunch with money from the tip jar. If you want to volunteer, it’d be great if you could shoot us an email ahead of time, but you’re also welcome to just stop in. It helps if you bring your own tools.

We make our best attempt to fix everything, and are even prepared for sewing and jewelry repair, but we mostly get household electronics. DVD players and CD players like to break pretty frequently, it turns out. We try our best to fix with materials we have on hand, but also help people diagnose and point them to where to order parts. We are not above searching the internet for instructions on how to fix things, either.

Email me at [email protected] for more info. We hope to see some of you there, volunteering or bringing in your broken stuff!
