We lend out tools for everyone to use to maintain their homes and spaces, all while reducing the waste of unnecessary consumption, removing barriers to access of expensive tools, and empowering folks to make the changes they need or want to in their spaces.

repair cafes

A team of “fixers” from the community provide quarterly repair services for small household items at no charge. Items include lamps, vacuum cleaners, furniture, toys, clothing and heirlooms which might otherwise be discarded.

SKTL hosts free classes and workshops, both in-person and online.  Topics include home repair, gardening, food preservation, and green cleaning. Each year hundreds have attended these classes, sometimes receiving free giveaways and/or checked out tools for their projects.

SKTL holds clothing swaps a couple times a year and has done game swaps too. Most of the donated items went to new homes and the remainder were donated to local second hand stores.
