Fix-It Austin Community Partner Event, Patagonia Austin, Saturday, 27. July 2019

What's a Fix-It Clinic?
Is there a fallen hem in your favorite shirt? Lost a button on a blazer? Bring a clothing item or two (any brand) items in need of repair to Patagonia’s Partner Fix-It Clinic! Volunteer coaches with repair know-how will be available to teach you how to fix your item. Patagonia repairs clothing for customers year-round through their Worn Wear program, but this event will focus specifically on teaching YOU how to fix-it!
Fix-It Clinics are all about do-it-together hands-on disassembly, troubleshooting and repair knowledge. Fix-It Clinic attendees are expected to be active participants in trying to fix their items with guidance from our coaches. Attendees should plan to stay with their items; dropping off of items for repair will not be permitted. Any Patagonia brand items that are unable to be repaired on site will be eligible for the Worn Wear send-off program.
What should I bring?
Your broken stuff and a desire to learn how to fix it! However, please note that we have a limit of two items for repair per person. Sewing machines and other tools will be available for you to use, but you can also bring your own machines and tools if you prefer. If you have a replacement part, missing button, a fabric patch, matching thread, etc. that you suspect might help you fix your item, please bring it with you.
Who can attend?
All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
How do I sign up?
Choose up to two tickets based on the item(s) you plan to bring and when you'll arrive. One ticket = one item. If you are registering for other family members, you may select up to two tickets per attending individual; please register tickets under the name of person who will be working on the item. If the specific ticket you are looking for is sold out, though we can't guarantee availability of our coaches, you are welcome to come to the clinic with your item and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Can I volunteer at the clinic?
We are always looking for individuals with repair skills to become Fix-It Coaches! To sign up as a repair coach for the Clinic, visit our volunteer sign-up platform online and claim a spot. We post all upcoming Fix-It Austin volunteer opportunities to this page.
