St Kilda Repair Cafe

Repairing goods, sharing skills & knowledge, reducing landfill & household spend, while celebrating community

Become a volunteer fixer/mender  

May was our 6th Repair Cafe!

We started in November 2017 and in the 6 repair cafes we’ve had so far we’ve had 151 visitors and our volunteer fixers have fixed 85 items, with another 42 needing some extra parts. That’s a total of 242 kg of ‘stuff’ saved from landfill, not to mention many happy people (see the photos elsewhere on this website).

If you’re interested in helping keep the St Kilda Repair Cafe up and running, please contact John Hillel:

– by phone 9807 9653

– by email

– or fill in the form on our Get involved page.

Please note: 

All our fixers are VOLUNTEERS, and there is no charge made for the fixes they do. However any donations people would like to make are welcomed to help us cover our costs (website, glues & other materials used from time to time.)
