Witch's Ladders are used for spellcasting, particularly binding a
spell to someone for a good cause--health, prosperity, happiness, etc.
Ladders may also be used to bind those who wish to harm others.

Witch's Ladder

Items you will need:

1 yard red satin cord{ symbolizes the Mother }
1 yard white satin cord{ symbolizes the Maiden }
1 yard black satin cord{ symbolizes the Crone }
9 feathers each of a different color

Gather the cords together and tie an overhead knot about 6
inches from the end. Braid the cords together to invoke the power of
the Three phase Goddess. This is easily done by saying a chant
during the braiding process, example:

"Maiden, Mother and Ancient Crone
Your powers to these cords please loan
I ask You combine them well
And bring your magick to this spell"

When the braiding reaches 6 inches from the (original knot) end,
take a feather and place it in the center of the braid. Knot the
cord around it and say an appropriate chant to add the properties to
the color of the ladder. For example, when tying a red feather you
may say:

"With this feather, I give you Fire, And love, passion and

For a green feather the chant may be something like this:

"Prosperity, I now bestow, Bring money in and let it flow"

The chants do not have to be fancy to be effective. What is
important is that you get the point across to the cosmos.

Continue this method until all 9 feathers are tied into evenly
spaced knots. When the feathers are secure, enchant the ladder
further by saying, example:

"Mother, Crone and Youngest Maid,
Carry out the plans I have laid
Add your blessings to this spell
So it serves {name of person } very well"

"So mote it be!"

Feather Magick

The magical qualities of feathers are determined by their color
(and, sometimes, by the birds from which they fell.) Never harm a bird
to obtain a feather.

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.
