Green Ossining’s Repair Cafe is back! Saturday, August 26th 11a-3p. Rec Center/Lower Level.

What’s a Repair Cafe? Basically, community access to free repair get-togethers and skill sharing. We fell in love with the idea and are the first in Westchester County in a movement that has been growing globally.

Repair Cafes offer the opportunity for community-sourced repair of broken items reducing contributions to the waste stream and building a sense of community through skill sharing. The Green Ossining Repair Cafe currently expects to have coaches on-hand to provide free assistance with repairing/advising on a number of items listed below.


  • Fabric Repair: seams, cuffs, hems, patches, buttons, pockets, etc
  • Wood Repair
  • Electrical Appliances
  • Toys
  • Tech Support for Computers & Mobile Devices
  • Plants: Advice & How-Tos
  • Antique Restoration
  • Ceramic Repair
  • Bikes (including tires)
  • Kids Table: learning circuitry & how stuff works
  • Costume Jewelry

Gasoline power tools cannot be used or repaired at the Cafe.

THANK YOU!! Melrose Lumber has offered to provide lamp parts at cost that will be available at the Repair Café.  If needed and upon advisement of Repair Cafe coaches, all other parts needed will need to be purchased by the owner.  Thank you too to First Village Coffee for serving up their delicious brew to our Repair Coaches.
