SHOWROOM: Have you visited?

Just a small part of our showroom

Is there something on the website at George Weil (formerly Fibrecrafts) or from the catalogue that you're tempted to buy but want to see or handle first?

If it's to treadle a spinning wheel, fondle the fibres, select a shuttle or flip through a book, visitors are welcome on week days between 10am and 4pm. We have most materials and equipment on display and if there's anything specific you'd like to see - just ask!

As some of our larger looms are displayed in a separate location nearby, we will need to arrange an appointment. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Telephone: 0(+44)1483 565800 or email us or click here for directions.

Shown here are just a small selection of the textile craft books on display in our tactile showroom

FIBRES: Huge Delivery of your Favourite Fibre

Our delivery of nearly a ton of Merino Wool tops arrived today and the small team at FIBRECRAFTS were run off their feet!

The large bumps of wool are a challenge to move and store but we've squeezed them in tight to ensure we can meet our customers demands. Whether they're going to be used for feltmaking or spinning, the mass of colours looked stunning in the morning sunshine.

Our picture shows Julie, in front of just a small selection of the tops, picking an order for the green - a great Spring time colour. What will become of it we wonder...
