As we're gearing up for a Remote Repair Café here in Cville, I thought I'd share this recent article from Apartment Therapy about how to repair broken lamps.
Since lamps are one of the most common items that need fixing at the Repair Café the Cville Time Bank puts on twice a year, this seemed like a good article to share with anyone looking for an easy place to start doing some of their own repair work.
Keep on keepin' on through isolation, and look for more details soon about the Remote Repair Café!

If you have a 3D printer or laser cutter, please consider adding it to the database here. Members of the UVA community are trying to get an idea of what sort of manufacturing capability we have in town if we need to start making PPE for the hospital.
UVA is looking for skull caps right now. Contact LaDelle Gay from UVA Health Volunteer Services. She will be happy to meet anyone at a convenient drop off location. You can call her at 434-806-1357 to arrange a pick up.
