Dislikes: Closed minded zealots
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?
Does pagan witch count?
What does the older knowledge of legend, myth, lore, story, tale, wisdoms mean to you?
Truths, words and wisdom to learn from.
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?
Part of a group called Steel Serenity. Entertainers (and sometimes educators) with sword, whip and other weapons. We are based out of Kansas City environs.

When it comes to my beliefs, I am a solitary.
If not of the older life styles, how tolerant are you ?
See above
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 to the KC Ren Fest in Kansas City. Newman Ren Faire in Wichita, KS (when it existed), Sunflower Ren Fest in Wichita, KS and Festival of the Dragon, Williamsburg, KS.

I have been helping at the Festival of the Dragon for 2 years now. I've been both Vendor and spectator. I like doing both.
Do you have any artistry, crafting, and trade… what do you create, Please share your talents with us.
Chainmaille, wirework, some beading, drawing.

Inspirations come from different things. Talking with friends, nature, things I see in my head (I know that sounds strange)
What is the best way to contact you if your talents are skills are desired?
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?
Open about my beliefs, in so far as someone asking me straight out if I am a pagan or witch, would get a definitive answer of yes. Even told my daughter that she could tell her friends "My mom is a witch!" (as opposed to bitch) and be telling the truth.

I have a strange sense of humor and an odd sense of style. Wait, I don't have a sense of style save for Comfortable. :D

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.
