Anna Sewell, born 30 March 1820 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, was a British writer.

At the age of fourteen she broke her ankle and received poor medical treatment; this, combined with a joint disease, left her unable to use her legs and feet and could only get around with the help of a horse and cart. She then came to love horses, but noticed that many horses were treated badly by their owners.

In 1871, she was told by a doctor that she only had eighteen months to live. She then began writing her first and only book, the novel Black Beauty 1877, which deals with the fate of a horse. She lived for another seven years after the death sentence, but towards the end was so weak that she could only write a few lines at a time, and her mother helped her with the clean writing.

Sewell died only a few months after the novel was published and therefore never experienced its great success. In 2003, Black Beauty was ranked number 58 in the BBC's list of the most popular British books.

The novel is seen today as a children's book but was originally written to encourage people to treat horses with love and understanding.

Grandma's Laundry Tricks:
  • Do not Brush, Rub or Scrub the printed fabrics too hard to avoid damage to print quality.
  • Wash with similar colours to avoid staining or tint.
  • Please do not overuse the centrifuge, it only wrinkles the fabric.
  • Please do not overuse the dryer or use extrem heat, this only tears the fibres apart.
  • A dehumidifier is a great invention to dry the fabrics and clothes.
  • Dry the fabrics outdoors, if possible, but not under direct sunlight.
  • Environmentally awareness and the durability of clothing go hand in hand.
  • Do You really need to use the fabric softener or is white vinegar good enough?
