Welcome to ImagineMechanix

I’m passionate about art and a variety of crafts, including knitting and crochet. This site has examples of my work and it provides downloadable material (knitting and crochet patterns, instructions for craft projects, gift tags, etc.).

I’m a marketing professional Monday through Friday, and when not working I create things that make me happy! I have a Master of Humanities in Literature and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and design. I have to put that education into practice, right?

In addition to what I post on my blog, I curate content on Pinterest and post images on Instagram

I hope you’ll enjoy exploring my website and following me on social media. You can also subscribe to my posts and get the latest content sent directly to your email box. Subscribe in the footer below.
