Description

In the broadest sense, a Fixers Collective is a group of folks who love to fix and mend things, which could be any old thing from broken blenders to ripped sweaters to antique dentist drills. Take it apart, put it back together, figure out how it works, refuse to throw it away, and get to know others who do the same! What the collective works on depends entirely on who shows up but you can be rest assured that there will be plenty of creativity involved.

Utilizing our diverse collection of over 1,500 tools, our membership has successfully grown entire community orchards, built mini-greenhouses, and even just mowed their own lawn. From basic tasks to brilliant innovations, the projects accomplished by the West Seattle Tool Library’s 780+ members have made all the tools in the collection proud to be working again.

Shouldn’t every city have this?
Seriously, what could be better than a place where you can get together and learn how to fix an old blender? This is not only a cool thing to learn but also enhances sustainability and reduces waste. Definitely a nominee for top EDvite!
