Nina Murden - The Lewes Seamstress
Lewes Furnishings

I make all types of bespoke curtains and blinds and pride myself on accuracy and careful attention to detail. I can work with your bought fabric, vintage fabrics being a speciality, or advise where to purchase material. I carry the Ian Mankin range; beautiful cotton, linen, wool and viscose fabrics all of which are woven in the UK.  I also have Swaffer and Moon fabrics, and can also supply most other well known fabrics. I am also an agent for the talented local printmaker Lizzie Hillier of Woven Oak.Curtains can be lined, interlined, blackout lined, with simple pencil pleat headings, or can be of the hand-sewn double or triple pinch pleat styles.

Roman Blinds
My roman blinds are all handmade and are carefully constructed to last, and can be either made with wooden dowels and top bar and have a straightforward corded pull, or can be made with fibreglass rods and a cassette type header rail.
They can be lined or unlined, blackout lined/interlined and have a chrome brass nickel or white pull and cleat

Door Curtains: These are custom made to fit your draughty interior doors or front door and are set on the French style ‘Portiere rod’. They are particularly suited to older less well insulated houses.

Cushions: All types of cushion designs made.
