About the Author


Sarah Johannsen was that ‘unusal’ kid who read old household hints and tips books, played with buttons and got excited about being allowed to use the iron.

Sarah is a self-educated domestic historian, specializing in all matters of household management and sometimes extends her scope to fashion, beauty and other feminine concerns of the past. And she can barely contain her enthusiasm for sewing; from techniques to fitting to the thrilling satisfaction of ‘I made it’!

As a lover of old household books, its little wonder she came to pen one in which she shares the hard-won wisdoms of a semichaotic and somewhat nomadic life.
