Fix-It Clinic

Bring your broken appliances, electronics, small furniture or clothing that needs mending! You’ll be paired with a coach who can help you diagnose, fix or just get to know your belongings a little better. All broken items must be carried into the clinic by the participant (please, no large appliances, furniture, etc.). There will be NO BICYCLE REPAIRS AT THIS CLINIC. Fix-It Clinics are designed to empower participants to become better stewards of their material belongings. Participants bring in a broken item that they would like to learn how to repair and get to work side-by-side with an experienced Repair Coach. Tools will be provided for use; however, participants are encouraged, but not required, to bring their own tools so they can learn how to properly use them. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately for working on their selected broken item (safety glasses, gloves, closed toe shoes and work-pants & shirts). Drop in any time and be sure to browse through the Patagonia Outlet while you're here for some great deals. Participants will be helped in order of when they arrive and based on when the best suited coach is available. Participants of all ages are invited! However, all youth under age 12 must be accompanied by legal guardian/parent. If you’re interested in volunteering as a coach for future clinics, please contact us at

Guest Author Bobbie Pyron

Fans of classic animal stories like Pax and A Dog’s Way Home will howl over the heartwarming adventures of a coyote pup lost in New York City. Brimming with curiosity, Trouble can’t wait to explore the world beyond Singing Creek. So one morning the coyote pup stows away in the back of a truck and ends up lost in the heart of New York City. While Trouble misses his siblings, he quickly makes friends in Central Park’s Ramble: a prankster crow, a timid opossum, and a poetic poodle. Before long, he goes from howling for home to wondering if he could make a life in the city forever. But when word gets out that a coyote is running wild on city streets, Trouble must choose between the risks of being caught and the dangers of a long journey home. ‚Äč Inspired by true stories, this accessible read from the award-winning author of A Dog’s Way Home will resonate with anyone who’s ever felt torn between the longing for adventure and the call of home. An appendix with real accounts of wild animals trapped in the city adds to the fun! Join us Saturday afternoon, February 24th, as we welcome author Bobbie Pyron to our store to read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of her heartwarming new book A Pup Called Trouble. This event will begin at 2:00 p.m.
