Thanks to Frome Town Council and Lottery funding we’re looking forward to hosting a season of Repair Cafes and Swap events across town venues.
Repair Cafe: our team of volunteers share their skills mending items including electronics, textiles & clothing, bikes, small furniture, crockery & toys. We also offer upcycling activities and demos at each event. For October we’ll be taking part in the Community Bunting Project for Frome Town Council. Bring along your fabric, thread and sewing kit and get making!
How it works – collect up one or two items that need mending:
Electrical repairs – please bring 1 portable item only as we have limited time for these.
Clothes and textiles – We’ll have sewing machines ready and people to help you learn how to darn a jumper, hem a skirt or fix a patch on your jeans!
Also – bikes, toys, small furniture
Please note – The Welsh Mill Hub venue is upstairs
Just turn up with your item! or email in advance if you have a specific query, as we cannot guarantee every item can be fixed
Swap Shop and Gift Exchange: Take stock of your stuff! Bring along and swap good quality items for reuse and resale. November: bring items that can be used for gifting and in January you can swap any unwanted gifts
