Profile Information

Tell us of your likes and dislikes. Music? Tv/Movies? Books? What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love all kinds of music, from rap to opera, and lots of fiction, especially alternate world fiction. I like exploring other possibilities and asking, "what if?" I like to hike, camp, garden, knit, sew, and quilt. I am also active in an online fan community.
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'm an artist, and married to another artist. Not as alternative as some, perhaps, but artists are always outsiders in a lot of ways.
What does the older knowledge of legend, myth, lore, story, tale, wisdoms mean to you?
Our history is longer than we're willing to admit in these days of terrible certainly, and we have forgotten many truths that our ancestors once knew.
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'm in the SCA, East Kingdom, Barony of Bikhail.
If not of the older life styles, how tolerant are you ?
I am very tolerant of other lifestyles. In diversity is our strength, and I support the courage of their choices.
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!
I've been going to Pennsic War as a merchant for 12 years, and I love it. I went to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire as a guest merchant for a weekend a few years ago, and I was very uncomfortable. Too public and too much of a show. Definitely not my thing.
Do you have any artistry, crafting, and trade… what do you create, Please share your talents with us.
I've been a jeweler and silversmith for 30 years. I also knit sweaters and afghans for myself and my family, and often design and make my own clothes, as my fashion ideas are sometimes not to be found in stores.
What is the best way to contact you if your talents are skills are desired?
By e-mail: jkofoed@rcn.com or niamhjk@gmail.com
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've always been something of an observer, wherever I am. I deeply love nature, and I love the diversity of mankind and rejoice in the many ways we relate to each other. My art comes from this.

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.
