Members of the Ridge Meadows Quilters Guild will be on hand at the second to last Maple Ridge Repair Café of the season to help put new life into quilts for the upcoming winter season.

Volunteers will also be ready to help fix broken items of all sorts including: bicycles; socks; jewelry; alarm clocks; stuffed toys; kettles; clothing; picture frames; and more.

Materials like glue, yarn, and spare parts, in addition to tools will be on hand at the Repair Café, taking place from 10-2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Maple Ridge Public Library, 22470 Dewdney Trunk Road.

And if a volunteer is unable to fix an item, they can give experienced advice.

The final café of the season will be taking place from 10-2 p.m. at the Maple Ridge library on Saturday, Nov. 18.

For this event the Museum on the Move will be a partner, presenting their interactive display with various activities, visual displays, and face-to-face encounters with local historians.
