MinneCulture | Meet the “fixers” who volunteer to help you repair appliances, clothing, and more

In a world of fast fashion and same-day delivery, it is often cheaper to buy a new coat than to fix a zipper. Or easier to toss out an old blender rather than swap out a blown fuse. But for those who would like to give their items some more life – either for environmental or sentimental reasons –there’s the Fix-It Clinic.

The Hennepin County Fix-It Clinic is a monthly gathering where volunteer ‘fixers’ work hand-in-hand with people to revive their broken items. Reporter Matthew Schneeman attended one of Hennepin County’s clinics for KFAI to see how they work.
