Hobby Prodigy was created to bring out the creative genius in all of us. Our desire is to help others channel their inner prodigy through crafting—our favorite hobby.
Hobby Prodigy provides materials, tools, and step-by-step instructions guests need to create their own brilliant DIY crafts in Pittsburgh, PA, at exclusive venues—or corporations in the Pittsburgh area.
Hobby Prodigy craft socials are more than a night of fun—they’re hands-on activities where guests connect and overcome any fears about arts and crafts, then leave feeling they have truly accomplished something extraordinary. What are you waiting for? Empower your inner genius. Get creative and inspire others to do the same. Start crafting your own inspirations that others will want to copy. You’ll surprise yourself.
It has been said that being creative is not a hobby, but a way of life. Our prodigy’s passions are people and crafting. Our pedagogues are passionate about helping others and provide extraordinary service to Hobby Prodigy guests.

Tamara Circle is the planner and organizer behind Hobby Prodigy. If you've had an event, fundraiser or been part of our Crafts for a Cause Program, chances are you've met or chatted with Tamara or as we like to call her "T." She's the mother or two busy boys and the President of a Pediatric Liver Non-Profit, the Children's Liver Association for Support Services (C.L.A.S.S). She runs Hobby Prodigy's day to day operations and events, and overall helps everyone work "smarter, not harder."
Gift Giving is one of Tamara's favorite things! Designing and crafting a DIY project for someone and seeing them light up with love and joy, makes her heart so full. Hobby Prodigy makes this possible, each and every day as she shares her love of crafting and giving with her prodigies.
Tamara is the COO of Hobby Prodigy.
