Repair Cafés

Bring along your damaged or broken clothing, textile items, or electronics, and we’ll help you fix them.

Repair education is central to our mission to reduce waste, empowering individuals and communities with skills to repair and reuse their belongings and improve their lives, for all of their lives. 

Pop into Edinburgh Remakery at 13A Newkirkgate Shopping Centre any time between 11am-1pm and get help with fixing your broken electronics and textiles and clothing items.

Every Friday

What can we help fix?

Sewing repairs: Our experienced sewers can help with repairs and alterations to textiles and clothing items, such as replacing buttons and zips, sewing on a patch, mending a rip, taking up trousers or a dress, or fixing a hem.  

Electronic repairs: Our Hardware Repair technicians and volunteers can help with any kind of broken Tech including laptops, desktops, monitors, Macs, and game consoles. Please note that we cannot help with general electrical goods such as toasters, lamps, irons, hair straighteners, hoovers, etc, and are not able to help with software issues such as WordPress, Photoshop, etc.

These drop-in sessions are run on a first-come first serve basis so there’s no need to make an appointment. Whilst these sessions are free, if you can afford to do so you can help support this and our other community services with a small donation for each item fixed. This helps us to share more of these valuable skills and repair opportunities with members of the community who may not otherwise be able to afford them.
