  • At this free outdoor event at 21 Acres (in and near the parking lot), King County’s skilled “fixers” will try to repair and mend your household items and clothing!

    The format of this event, and services provided, are different than past King County repair events, due to the pandemic.

    Sign up in advance. One item per person for sign-ups. To try to space out the repair jobs, you may be given a time to arrive.

    To sign up for this Woodinville event, or if you have any questions about this event or the repair events program, contact repair events coordinator Tom Watson email Tom Watson via e-mail or at 206-477-4481.

    At this free outdoor event, King County's skilled "fixers" will try to repair and mend your household items and clothing!

    You can also ask questions or start your sign-up on the Facebook event page external link .

    Even if you are signed up in advance, it’s possible you may have to wait a while, or that we won’t get to your item at all (since we never know how long each repair will take). As always, we may not be able to fix an item.

    Repair customers should primarily stay in designated, shaded waiting areas while their item is being worked on.

    Everyone must have a face mask with them, so they could wear it in case the current mask guidance changes. Whether you are vaccinated or not fully vaccinated, when going indoors for any reason, (such as to use the restroom or visit the 21 Acres Farm Market), or outdoors in close contact with others, you must wear a face mask.

    We will work on small household and personal items (such as lamps, vacuums and small kitchen equipment), as well as clothing and textiles.

    No lengthy reconstructive repairs; no microwaves; no gas-powered equipment; no major clothing alterations; and no knife/tool sharpening.

    We may decline to work on an item – in advance or at the event – depending on the item, the type of repair needed, or the fixers available. You may be asked to buy and bring specific parts needed for your repair.

    Big thanks to our “fixers” and crew! We always do our darnedest to try to help people, as we conserve resources and reduce waste! Hope to see you there!
