Nina Murden - The Lewes Seamstress

Working week

Last week’s work –

Completed a fun, blue striped 4” deep window seat cushion with sky blue piped edgings  made with striped ticking – bought from the Stitchery

for Peter Messer.

Have finished a remake of a beautiful hand sewn and embroidered lectern ‘fall’ for St Michael’s church. Out of the most sumptuous silk sourced from Watts of London in Tufton Street.

Had a repeat order for some book rest covers for those working with ancient manuscripts, going up to the British Library, Victoria and Albert Museum and Lithuania!

I went to a Baxter’s printing works home (stunning views), to do a bespoke sofa seat cover workshop (using amazing up-cycled wool army blankets). Followed by a lovely lunch generously provided!

Plus altered/repaired  12 x trouser/jean hems, 5 x jacket sleeves, 4 dress hems and darts, 3 x jacket linings, 3 x trouser waists.  And walked the beautiful downs – Landport Bottom to the back of my workshop at the end of each day – Here is the view from my workshop, with sheep and hollyhocks.
