Hippie Hobby gives subscribers fun, stress-free projects with a natural twist delivered directly to their doorstep. The boxes ship free to anywhere in the United States.

The Hippie Hobby box was created out of the want and need for a little time to unwind for individuals needing to relax after work, explains Koffman. What began as a small group of friends getting together for a night of wine, a potluck, and crafting, became much more when the two women saw the need to cater to friends who either lived out of state or were unable to make the craft night.

“Being a busy entrepreneur, I needed a way to relax and de-stress after managing all my different projects,” Koffman recalls. “I had always been interested in crafting and decided I would start a crafting group with my friends and it became a big hit.”

A cornerstone of The Hippie Hobby box, from the products used to the packaging paper, is to offer a DIY craft kit that incorporates natural, recycled or up-cycled materials, making The Hippie Hobby box a more eco-friendly subscription box option for DIY crafters.

“When Heidi started The Hippie Hobby she wanted to incorporate green and natural elements into the crafts projects, I was able to develop creative and economical ways for us to accomplish this goal as we developed The Hippie Hobby box concept for an expanded audience,” partner Jennifer Racer says.

The Hippie Hobby is available for moms, dads, working individuals, and those that love to craft to sign up, escape the world of technology and get creative. Visit www.thehippiehobby.com.
