Our shop policies


When you buy handmade from Twisted Knickers, you are getting an item made by one person - Arlene MacAusland (that's me). All of the items in my shop are handcrafted by me from start to finish ( including the patterns) in my home studio.

I do operate under the name of Twisted Knickers INC for business purposes because this is my REAL job. I pay business taxes, incorporation fees, insurance, heating, lighting, lawyers, accountants, bank fees, highway signage, mileage, suppliers.... **whew**, way too much to take on under my personal name so Twisted Knickers INC was created.
