Following in Grandpa's Footsteps

Did you know that Doctor Ian Bowers, Managing Director of George Weil & Sons Ltd, has run the business since it merged with Fibrecrafts, over 20 years ago?

Fibrecrafts was set up in 1982 by Anna Bowers, to offer textile crafts supplies for hand spinners, weavers, dyers, felt makers and knitters. Anna set the standard for the service we are proud of today. The products are still sourced from the best world-wide manufacturers, offering choice, quality and value. Ian took up the reins after Anna sadly died in 1994.

Today in August 2017 her legacy lives on. We now welcome their granddaughter Sophie to the team!


Sophie attended Farnham Sixth Form College, studying health and social care. Her ambition is to become a midwife, and hopes her experience here at George Weil will ready her for a busy future. Sophie is an intelligent, productive worker, who from her first few days here has already shown great potential.

Do we have a new MD in our midst? Watch out Ian!
