I’m a little behind in posting this, but we had a fantastic event at St Lawrence Market on September 28th. But first, news from elsewhere:
- Our friends at the Edmonton Repairathon had their first trial event, which was covered by Metro News.
- There was a Repair Café October 19. The next one is November 16.
- There’s a clothing swap on the Danforth on October 27.
- The Toronto Tool Library‘s new Danforth location is now open. We may even host a Repairathon there sometime 🙂
The St Lawrence Market went well from the beginning. Shortly after I arrived to set up, I was interviewed for 680 News and we were heard on the radio about an hour later. Unfortunately I haven’t found any recording. Photos from the event will also be in the upcoming issue of Snapd Downtown Toronto.
Our volunteers for the event were Michael (myself), Jenny, Mardy, Bebi, Bianca, Ernie, and Stephan. Thanks so much to all of you for making this happen. Also thanks very much to our generous “customers,” who provided us with some excellent fruit and pastries from the market.
Thanks also to Renata Janiszewska, who chose to thank us with a piece of her artwork, shown below. Created in 2013.
Lastly, we may be taking it a bit slow over the next few months. As always, we’ll post here on our blog when we have a date for the next event.
