Free Repair Surgery at The Edinburgh Remakery @ The Edinburgh Remakery | Scotland | United Kingdom

The Repair Surgery is a FREE weekly drop-in event that takes place at The Edinburgh Remakery every Thursday from 6pm to 8:30pm. The purpose of the Repair Surgery is to help people mend their belongings, primarily textiles (such as clothes) and IT equipment (such as laptops).

How does it work?

  • The Repair Surgery is a drop-in, which means you do not have to make an appointment, just come along with your item and our expert volunteers will help you from there!
  • We run on a first-come first-serve basis and we’re open to everyone, so if it is a busy evening you may have to wait a short while. We advise that you arrive before 8pm if you are bringing along any IT.
  • This is a free service but we wouldn’t be able to keep it running without donations. We ask that if possible, you donate
    ​whatever you can afford and feel is appropriate
    ​for the help you have received.
    ​All donations are gratefully received.
  • We love repeat customers, however we are limited for space and the Repair Surgery is not a weekly club, so please only come along if there are specific items you need help with.

What can we help with?

  • Our sewing tutors can help with repairs and minor alterations; such as replacing a button, sewing on a patch, mending a rip,
    ​and taking up trousers.
  • We have a small supply of replacement buckles, buttons, Velcro, darning wool, and zips, but cannot guarantee to have the right size, type and colour.
  • Our computer tutors can help with any kind of broken electronics including laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, printers, monitors, TVs e-readers, Macs, Iphones, Ipads, Ipods, and game consoles.
  • They cannot help you with electrical goods like irons, food processors, radios, hair straighteners etc.
  • We do not teach people how to use software (for example programmes like WordPress, Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc),
    ​and there is no public wi-fi available

Free Repair Surgery at The Edinburgh Remakery @ The Edinburgh Remakery
May 14 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Free Repair Surgery at The Edinburgh Remakery @ The Edinburgh Remakery | Scotland | United Kingdom

The Repair Surgery is a FREE weekly drop-in event that takes place at The Edinburgh Remakery every Thursday from 6pm to 8:30pm. The purpose of the Repair Surgery is to help people mend their belongings, primarily textiles (such as clothes) and IT equipment (such as laptops).

How does it work?

  • The Repair Surgery is a drop-in, which means you do not have to make an appointment, just come along with your item and our expert volunteers will help you from there!
  • We run on a first-come first-serve basis and we’re open to everyone, so if it is a busy evening you may have to wait a short while. We advise that you arrive before 8pm if you are bringing along any IT.
  • This is a free service but we wouldn’t be able to keep it running without donations. We ask that if possible, you donate
    ​whatever you can afford and feel is appropriate
    ​for the help you have received.
    ​All donations are gratefully received.
  • We love repeat customers, however we are limited for space and the Repair Surgery is not a weekly club, so please only come along if there are specific items you need help with.

What can we help with?

  • Our sewing tutors can help with repairs and minor alterations; such as replacing a button, sewing on a patch, mending a rip,
    ​and taking up trousers.
  • We have a small supply of replacement buckles, buttons, Velcro, darning wool, and zips, but cannot guarantee to have the right size, type and colour.
  • Our computer tutors can help with any kind of broken electronics including laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, printers, monitors, TVs e-readers, Macs, Iphones, Ipads, Ipods, and game consoles.
  • They cannot help you with electrical goods like irons, food processors, radios, hair straighteners etc.
  • We do not teach people how to use software (for example programmes like WordPress, Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc),
    ​and there is no public wi-fi available
