Southampton Repair Cafe




Your repair skills wanted!


Can you mend wooden items, or metal items, or garden tools, or do knife sharpening? Do you know how to mend small electrical items, or mend clothing, or fix software problems? We’re looking for a team of people with as wide a range of skills as possible to help in our Repair Cafe.


There’s a Repair Café starting up in Southampton in the autumn. The Cafe will feature up to 10 suitably experienced repairers covering a range of skills, along with teas, coffees and cakes and a chance to chat over a cuppa while waiting for a repairer to become available.


This is a great opportunity for So Make It members to help the local community and get our name and good skills out there to help promote the space!  If all goes well we may consider running future events at So Make It.


If you have one of the repair skills mentioned, or know anyone who might be interested, or have links with groups which might be able to help, please contact us via
