-furniture/wooden objects

-watches/clocks
-bicycles
-ceramics
-general mechanical (small items only)
-other skills are welcome

Also looking for volunteer hosts (welcome table, signing-in people, etc) and volunteers to staff our kids "take apart table."

If you are interested in bringing an item for repair the first Repair Cafe will be held this Spring. This event is for volunteer recruitment & information so please leave your broken items at home today.

In January we are discussing the novel Geek Love by Katherine Dunn which is a venture into sopisticated perversity. It is a story which mixes tenderness, terror, suspense and dark comedy. It is told by Olympia Binewski, a bald albino hunchback dwarf and members of the American carnival family. Al and Lil, proprietors of Binewski's Fabulon, hit upon the idea of breeding their own freak show.
