  • Clothing (hand and machine sewing)
  • Electronics (small items only, please)
  • Housewares (furniture, ceramics, lamps, etc.)
  • Jewelry
  • And more!

Drop-in Demonstrations:

Come by anytime in the scheduled time frame to see a ~5 minute repair demo!

  • 5:45 to 6:15 pm: Those Darned Socks: Fixing Holes - Many times, socks, jackets, and sweaters are working great, until you wear through the toe, elbow, or snag them on something. Darning is a method of fixing holes using only thread, rather than sewing a patch on. Drop by the Clothing repair station to see how it’s done. (Leader: Amanda Abbott, volunteer with the Waste Watchers)
  • 6:15 to 6:45 pm: Unbound: Basic Book Repair - While the knowledge we can learn from a book may last a lifetime, the book itself certainly does not. With continual use books are susceptible to damage, wear and loose pages. Come to the Household repair station to learn a few easy book repair tips and tools, extending the life of some of your favorite stories.  (Leader: Kyle Knight, Waste Reduction Projects Coordinator for the Student Sustainability Initiative)
  • 6:45 to 7:15 pm: Make Your Own Used T-Shirt Bag - Drop by the Clothing repair station to learn how to reduce waste by making an old T-shirt into a reusable bag using a quick and easy no-sew technique! Leave with your very own reusable shopping bag along with the know-how to make more at home. All supplies provided, but feel free to bring your own shirt if you have one you’d like to use.  (Leader: Andrea Norris, Marketing & Development Coordinator for Campus Recycling).

Note: We don’t have spare parts, but will do our best to repair what we can and/or refer you to where you could find the parts you need. If you have parts already, we may be able to help you install them.

Directions: Enter through the warehouse gates on 13th St., between the railroad tracks and A Ave. See a map of the entrance and parking here. View our building on Google Maps here. Enter through the warehouse gate on 13th Street, between A Ave. and the railroad tracks.

The Seeds of Peace Tomorrow are in the Children of Today

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 5:21pm
Thursday, January 23, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

John Hunter, master teacher and creator of the World Peace Game, will share the subtle mechanics of his geo-political simulation, how it has for 35 years proved to be a successful interdisciplinary classroom tool, and why now his work has been hailed as a tool for peace by institutions ranging from the US Pentagon to the United Nations.  

Hunter's heart-felt message of hope has evolved from a regular, intensive practice of engaging his students in the chaos and uncertainty of life.  

The World Peace Game creates a transformative fiction which requires negotiation, leadership, empathy and collaboration to tackle the impossible goals of developing practical solutions to global dilemmas and fostering the welfare of all nations and their peoples.  

Hunter inspires with the stories of immense compassion, courage and optimism that have sprung from the collective wisdom of school children who are truly our best hope for peace tomorrow.

Hunter is author of the 2013 book and subject of the 2013 award winning documentary both entitled World Peace and Other Fourth Grade Achievements.   

This film will be showed on 1/22 at the Majestic Theater as part of the City of Corvallis Martin Luther King Celebration.

Oregon State University and the city of Corvallis will celebrate peace and the teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr., in late January with a series of events coordinated by OSU and the city’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Commission.

John Hunter, author, filmmaker, educator and TED Talk participant, will deliver the annual Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Annual Peace Lecture, which will be held in Milam Auditorium at OSU on Thursday, Jan. 23, beginning at 7 p.m. His talk, “The Seeds of Peace Tomorrow are in the Children of Today,” will focus on Hunter’s work with elementary students and his creation of a World Peace Game, which he uses as an interdisciplinary classroom tool.

The World Peace Game has been hailed as a tool for peace by institutions ranging from the United States Pentagon to the United Nations.

A film screening of the documentary “World Peace and Other Fourth Grade Achievements” will take place on Jan. 22, beginning at 7 p.m., at the Majestic Theatre in downtown Corvallis. The film focuses on Hunter’s work with his fourth grade class as the students discover that they share a deep interest in taking care of the world and each other. 

The screening also will include a welcome by Corvallis Mayor Julie Manning and the announcement of this year’s City of Corvallis Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Commission scholarship winners.
