WELCOME Time4Time Community Exchange Members! We're 175 members strong!
We recognize that each person has talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when neighbors help one another. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn a time credit for the exchange. This time credit can then be redeemed for services from any other timebank member.
Remember, in a timebank, receiving services is as important as giving them. Requesting a service allows someone else to give. So make alot of requests!
Bring and Fix Fair in NW Philly?
by Betsy Wallace
I'm very excited about the "Bring and Fix" Repair Fair that we hope to sponsor in NW Philly this Fall. Philippe Granger, Timebank Coordinator at Rushey Green Timebank in England, created the idea a few years ago. It's been highly popular in England. Basically, "Bring and Fix" is a fair for fixing things - gluing a missing part onto a small piece of furniture or toy or whatever, mending a hole in a sweater, hemming a skirt, fixing a computer problem, helping revamp a resume, getting a bike tune-up, fixing a shoe, massaging an ailing back, providing translation. And it's a great place to learn new skills like how to compost and recycle responsibly, homesteading, etc....
Just click HERE for more on Bring and Fix.
It's intergenerational and it's FUN! There's music and good food. Kids get to play, maybe even learn some clowning skills on the way. If T4T members like this idea and the first event is successful, we may make it a regularly occurring event.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I delete a service offer/request?
Click on "My Account." Scroll down to your list of service offers and requests. Click on the one you want to delete. Once you are on the service ad page, click on "edit." Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "delete." Community Weaver will ask you to confirm that you want to delete the service ad - click "delete" again.
What should I do if I make a mistake in recording a time exchange?
T4T members do not have the authority to alter time exchanges once they are recorded. Call or email the T4T Member Coordinator and they will correct the mistake for you.
ATTENTION WEAVERS WAY MEMBERS!
Weavers Way now has its own profile page with user name (weavers way). Weavers Way/T4T members will receive time credits for any work you do for Weavers Way beyond your required household service hours. If you serve on a committee, help with strategic planning, work an event or on the farm etc., and you have already fulfilled your yearly service hours, you can record the exchange and receive time credits.
For those of you who did extra work for Weavers Way on or after April 7, 2013, you can now record the exchange for the hours you worked.
- Time4Time members can arrange a time-trade directly with each other without first posting a request/service ad. Just make sure you record the exchange.
- Don't hesitate to respond to an offer or request. This is exactly how new sharing and relationships are built which strengthen our community.
- Please respond in a timely manner to calls or emails you receive from your neighbors about the requests or offers you've posted.
- After you've communicated with a neighbor and determined that a time-trade is appropriate, make specific arrangements regarding how to coordinate the time-trade.
- Fulfill the requested service and save a record of it in your hours account.
- Come back and review offers and requests from other members
