About Our Story

Around the house, husband and wife duo Jason and Jill referred to projects found and (actually) executed from Pinterest became their "PIPs" or Pinterest in Person projects. Frustrated by blogs lacking steps, lacking of tools to complete steps, and the many failed attempts to recreate "easy" projects, Jill wondered why there wasn't a place where you could go to do only the fun and sexy part of DIY. Add Jason's handyman, engineering, and perfectionist skills with Jill's teaching backround, love for interior design, and Pinterest stalking ways - PIP was born! The business now provides attendees the opportunity to do much of the project production themselves, while leaving the boring details up to PIP behind the scenes (and did we mention the clean up?)!  Since opening in December 2016, we have grown from a team of 2 to a team of 5 workshop leaders and a production assistant. We can't wait to help you live out your DIY dreams! - Team PIP

About PIP

PIP aims to empower each customer by completing a project, and instilling a look-what-I-made feeling. In a world so focused on screen time, many find themselves more interested in "pinning" items they could create rather than doing it. PIP provides the venue, instruction, and materials to bring a project off the screen and into life.

Join us to complete a project, in person!

About The Space


Our venue, 906 Mainstreet, is located in the heart of the downtown Hopkins business district. Thanks to our friends at the Hopkins Historical Society, we know 906 Main was a saloon and shooting range at the turn of the 20th century. Yes...at the same time... While we renovated the space, we preserved as much of the history we could. From an original tin ceiling, to an intricate hexagon tile floor, the venue is nothing short of inspiring. Sign up for a workshop or join us at an event to experience PIP in Hopkins.
