Brussels lace and more for craft lovers
Andrea Boekel will hold her sale of exquisitely-crafted, hand-made and hand-embroidered home beautiful items, on Saturday June 19. Making Brussels Lace is a delicate, intricate and laborious process. In Brussels, where the craft originated, items embellished with this type of lace are prohibitively expensive.

Andrea, who spearheaded a 'village labour resource' spirit in the early 90's, produces this lace locally using raw material imported from Belgium. The items decorated with this lace are functional as well as irresistibly beautiful.

Using quality raw materials like Italian linen, the items on sale are guaranteed to go down as heirlooms. Also on sale will be a range of beautifully hand-embroidered items including shadow work table cloths, napkins, table runners and cushion covers.

Another feature of this sale will be interesting fabrics for crafters and needlework lovers. Fine European linen, cross stitch fabric and soft batiste, pretty prints and other prized fabrics will also be available.

Laces and braids, buttons and ribbons - the sale will be a place where all crafters can pick up a bargain. Andrea maintains a reasonable pricing structure. The items on sale will be affordable considering the labour-intensive work, and are guaranteed to delight the receiver. The sale will be held at No. 16, Kinross Avenue, Colombo 4, on June 19, from 9 a.m. onwards.
