In 2024, Repair Café turns 15! We will celebrate this in various ways. On Friday 18 October – our actual anniversary – we will hold a Repair Café XL in The Hague. In the city where the Dutch government is housed, we will show what Repair Café is all about: we’re for repairing, but also for collaboration, volunteering and a shared commitment to a sustainable future.

Joint bunting line makes global movement visible

During the Repair Café XL, we also want to emphasise that Repair Café is a global movement, with supporters in more than 40 countries across six continents. Therefore, we invite all Repair Cafés to make a textile flag to hang on a common bunting line. Repair Café International offers a pattern and instructions on how to make it.

Create your own flag and send it to Repair Café International

Want your Repair Café to participate, too? Then, download the pattern and instructions and get creative. Send the result to Repair Café International in Amsterdam (our address is in the instructions). Using all contributions, we will make a – hopefully very long – bunting line that we can use to decorate the Repair Café XL party location on 18 October. This way, all Repair Cafés will be joined in celebration.

  1. Great idea! Look forward to seeing the finished flags flying! Hoping our lovely Bassendean Repair Cafe textile team can take part.

  2. We love this idea and decided to hold a competition and invite all our volunteers, visitors and supporters to design and make a flag representing Wirral Repair Café. (Opportunity to further engage the local community!) All entries will be strung across our café and finally we will vote for the one to be sent to you.
    Our remaining flags will make colourful bunting to decorate our stalls at the fairs and various events we join in.
    I know you need the flag for October, but what is the deadline for you to receive them?
