Question of the Week
At the November Repair Fair, drop-in demonstrations will be offered alongside the free repairs. List the name of the drop-in demos, and include the time frame for each.
The November Repair Fair will be held on November 20 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. The drop-in demos are as follows:
- 5:45 to 6:15 pm: Recycle your Cycle: Change Out Your Tube – Do you know what to do if you get a flat tire on your bicycle? Drop by the Bicycle repair station to see how to change out a bicycle tube, as well as what disposal options you have for your old tube(s). (Leader: Jake Kane, Transportation Projects Coordinator for the Student Sustainability Initiative)
- 6:15 to 6:45 pm: The Basics of Vacuum Maintenance – Household vacuum cleaners come in all shapes and sizes but they work in the same simple way; to function properly they need regular maintenance and cleaning. Stop by the Household repair station for a short demo on basic vacuum maintenance. (Leader: Kyle Knight, Waste Reduction Projects Coordinator for the Student Sustainability Initiative)
- 6:45 to 7:15 pm: Those Darned Socks: Fixing Holes – Many times, socks, jackets, and sweaters are working great, until you wear through the toe, elbow, or snag them on something. Darning is a method of fixing holes using only thread, rather than sewing a patch on. Drop by the Clothing repair station to see how it’s done. (Leader: Amanda Abbott, volunteer with the Waste Watchers)
