"We Fit EVERY Body!"

For 20 years, I have offered my custom design and sewing services to the public. I make clothing and costumes for men and women, custom designed and personally fitted. If it would not embarrass me to show it to my mother, and if it does not defy the laws of physics, I can make it. I can work from sketches or photos, as well as patterns.

I welcome clients of all sizes and lifestyles. My goal is to construct a garment that is comfortable and aesthically pleasing for you. I am experienced in unusual fit and super (6XL and up) sizes.

I am dedicated to quality materials and construction, so that your garment should give you years of delightful wear. I work from measurements, and prefer to do at least one fitting on the client before delivery. In addition, I take care to book orders to allow me sufficient time to complete them while maintaining high standards of work.

My sewing room is smoke free, but it does have two cats who sleep there during the days while I work. If you have cat allergies, I can take special steps during the construction of your garment to keep exposure to cat dander at a minimum. I run an Austin triple air filter to eliminate possible allergens from the air. Rest assured that your satisfaction with your custom garment includes freedom from nicotine and other allergens.

If you need any additional information or have any questions, please call me 512-445-3429 or email me at I look forward to sewing for you!

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
