Profile Information

Tell us of your likes and dislikes. Music? Tv/Movies? Books? What do you like to do in your spare time?
I collect music all kinds. I'm and Aquaponics gardener, raise Tilapia and catfish with my veggies and fruits.
Are you currently living what may be considered an alternative lifestyle? For example, are you a traveling artist, practicing a non-mainstream spirituality, or part of a BDFSM lifestyle?
I have ALWAYS practised one alternative lifestyle or another hehe. Was a biker for many years. I'm an Eclectic Wiccan/Neo-Pagan/Native American tree hugger.
What does the older knowledge of legend, myth, lore, story, tale, wisdoms mean to you?
Legends and myth are a combination of trueths and imagination and it is up to each of us to glean what we can from them. They are important because they contain wisdom and ideas to grow in fertal minds.
Do you belong to any organizations; re-enactment based (i.e. households, tribes, clans), spiritual based (i.e. covens, orders, or other pagan groups) or other? If so which ones and where?
I have played in the SCA in the past and have thought about doing that again.
If not of the older life styles, how tolerant are you ?
Very tolerant! And always interested, a bit of an Amature Anthropologist I find all lifestyles fasinating.
Have you ever been to a Renaissance Faire or Medieval Fest? If so, which did you prefer? If not, which would you rather attend? Would you rather be a participant or spectator? Please relate to us your experience!
AT LEAST TWICE A YEAR! hehe We go to the Texas Ren Faire and the Scarborough Faire every year at least once sometimes several times each season.
Do you have any artistry, crafting, and trade… what do you create, Please share your talents with us.
Aquaponics - I've done a lot with that recently. I like to build cigarbox guitars.
What is the best way to contact you if your talents are skills are desired?
email or facebook
Please answer all questions honestly and openly so staff and members can get to know you. Approval of your application will be based upon your answers. Any thing else you would like to tell people?
I'm 55, farm raised, Vietnam Vet, Master Electrician at one time, 20 years in computers and networking. Road with some tough MC's in the past. Was National President of the Sons Of Texas for a couple of years (I founded the club)

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.
