Susan Maw and Sally Bell
We are sisters and partners in Maw-Bell Designs. We design quilts, children's clothing, fabrics, and accessories and publish them in patterns and books.
We have ‘created’ together since we were kids on our parents’ farm using our cats as models for our doll clothes! We had a business together making cloth and wood dolls in the ‘80’s. After taking a break to raise our families, we started our current business, Maw-Bell Designs. ‘Creating the look’ for each pattern and following through with designs that fit our theme have been so much fun for us. We love all aspects of art, but especially love playing with color and fabric.
Susan and her husband live in beautiful Kalispell, Montana. They have three sons and a daughter. Sally and her husband live about 150 miles away in Montana's Bitterroot Valley. They have one son and one daughter.
We feel so fortunate to be sisters and have a wonderful time together designing, redesigning, discussing designing, etc.
