JP Fixit Clinic

Jamaica Plain’s next Fixit Clinic is scheduled for Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 10am-12:45pm at the JP Library at 30 South Street.  It's a free, all-ages, do-it-together activity where people bring their broken household things and learn how to assess, disassemble, and repair them instead of sending them to landfill.  

Come join your neighbors on Saturday, June 15 at this free event. Just bring your broken household items, any manuals (if available), and a willingness to learn.  We’ll provide the tools and volunteer coaches with expertise fixing a wide variety of things, including:

Bikes and skateboards

Clothing and fabric items

Computers and phones

Toys and wooden items

Small kitchen appliances

Small electrical devices

Jewelry

Lamps and anything else! (but no firearms, gasoline engines, or other dangerous items)

JP Fixit Clinic to Highlight Digital Right to Repair Legislation on June 15

The next JP Fixit Clinic will have an extra facet added to its regular focus on helping people fix their broken household items. Clinic organizers will also be letting people know about the Digital Right to Repair legislation that is currently under consideration at the State House. The JP Fixit Clinic is organized by the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council's Environment, Parks & Energy Committee. The JPNC sent a letter in support of the bill last year, which didn't make it out of committee. This year it has been reintroduced (read the text here). If enacted the bill would require digital electronics manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with fair access to service information, security updates, and replacement parts.
