    Found out that Burlington ON has a Facebook group holding monthly repair cafes in different parts of the city. Next event is on Sat. Jan. 18,2020 at the Art Gallery of Burlington. https://www.facebook.com/Burlington.Canada.Repair.Cafe/

    Their ad in the Silver and Gold Magazine (Winter issue) mentions that the cafe could use some more people who are good at fixing electronics and small appliances.

    Is there a community group offering regular or seasonal repair cafes in your area?

    Burlington cafe had a low turnout due to the storm but there's already a date for February: the 15th!

    The Burlington March 21 Repair Cafe has been cancelled at the Art Gallery. Next event is set for late April. See recent post on Facebook.

    No repair cafes in Burlington until after June: https://www.facebook.com/Burlington....9677?__tn__=-R

    I bet that to cure boredom, some people in Burlington will likely barter their repair services with neighbours for something they can do for them while most are at home. I can see that happening in the springtime.

    It's cool that such projects exist. Some establishments need restoration, but they do not know where to start and what exactly they need. Many owners of cafes and restaurants have no idea how they can make their establishment modern, interesting and attractive.
