Out of curiosity, Chris Tock got into sewing by chance when he participated in a Cosplay event. He then moved on to sew custom cosplay costumes for friends. Combining both his passion for sewing and education, he founded Tock Custom, a Dallas-based design studio that specializes in men’s clothing, customer messenger bags and cosplay costumes. He also runs a successful YouTube channel sharing sewing tutorials to inspire others who may have been just like him - looking to get into sewing their own clothing or costumes.
Powering His Business with Brother Machines
Chris Tock, founder of Tock Custom, uses his Brother machines to create custom and handmade products – high-quality men’s clothing, messenger bags, accessories, cosplay, props, and costumes. Chris turned his hobby into a business when he recognized the value of how unique the items he was making were, and the demand that people had.

I love how easy Brother machines are to learn to use right out of the box. There’s great continuity between machines, so when I learned on one, I felt like I learned how to use them all.
