Dear Wonderful Humans,

Last month, the Community Glue Workshop Repair Clinic celebrated their 11th birthday! 


Community Glue Workshop Repair Clinic @ CCRx Saturday, September 30th, 12pm - 3pm 

Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx)

2124 W. 82nd Place, Chicago 60620


There is no cost to have Community Glue volunteers look at, and hopefully fix, your items! We have a hard stop at 3pm, so please bring your items on the early side to ensure we have time to work on it.


  • Clothes (please wash in advance and note that we do NOT do alterations, only mends--our time is limited)
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Ceramics
  • Small furniture (chairs, etc.)
  • Toys
  • Knick-knacks & tchotchkes
  • Broken Hearts? I mean, I think we're pretty good looking.
  • ...basically, just bring in anything and we'll do what we can (unless it's a printer -- NO printers. )


  • *Please wash any clothing you want us to mend. It's the right thing to do and one of our few hardline requirements. We have our reasons!
  • Again, we do not do alterations on clothing. This takes too long and we don't have capacity. We do fix tears, add patches, and do visible and invisible mends.
  • We have a parking lot and there's plenty of street parking (all free)
  • Bring your item(s) to the check-in table off the parking lot and explain what's wrong, then y'all are free to get a coffee shop the CCRx Warehouse, visit the Dan Ryan Woods, check out the area, run to the bank, write a poem, master some origami, etc.
  • We'll take your cell phone number and will text or call you when the repair is complete!
  • All items must be collected by the end of the day or you risk having the item discarded. 


  • We've been doing this since 2012!
  • We frequently operate out of Bluestem Restoration on North Leavitt, but we love visiting the SW side : )
  • We've got handy volunteers and tools available to fix just about anything, provided it doesn't require a special part or isn't going to explode.
  • We honestly have a ton of fun doing this.
  • While we have a donation jar to help us replenish our supplies, we believe with all our hearts that payment should never be a barrier and it's 100% okay to not tip.
