BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) – A local DIY class is teaching woman how they can overcome their fears of fixing their own homes.

“I'm taking care of my home now and I need as much help as I can get,” said homeowner Amy Willey.

Women like Wiley signed for Hip Chicks at at Buck County Community Collegeso they could learn to cast aside their fears of picking up power tools.

Beth Allen, founder of Hip Chicks, is teaching women of all ages how to save money, time and stress by demystifying power tools and is proving that home improvement isn't just for men.

“I can teach these women the products they need, how to use them and not to be intimidated by the things that go wrong in the house,” she said.

Allen says anyone can do it but the most difficult hurdle is just letting go of their fear.

“These women can do all these projects; it’s a matter of how much fear is holding them back from taking the leap,” she said.

Hip Chicks is a five week class and the next chance to begin the set starts April 28, and classes are filling up fast.
