We shouldn’t have to keep buying new stuff just because small parts are broken. We want to see the best fixes you’ve done and the story of how you did them, using Sugru or other materials. From small household repairs to bigger jobs, from a fix of your own to a great repair you’ve spotted by someone else.

Whether simple, skilled or just plain funny fixes we want to celebrate mending in all its forms. Submit a high-resolution photo and a short description of the mending story to fixit@irishtimes.com – the five best examples will win an eight-pack of Sugru and a Sugru + magnets kit.
