Hello, thank you for visiting Swifty Bell Designs. I am Catherine Bell, a designer and maker of contemporary embroidery in South Manchester supplying primarily to shops and galleries.


I love bold, vibrant material and am fascinated by how different materials work when laid together, how fraying an edge can give a new dimension and how imprecise embroidery brings character to a creation.


Please contact me if you would like to commission me if there is an embroidery you would like making for something or somebody specific. I can include your treasured fabrics as part of commissions. Fabric is a great medium to preserve memories.


Please browse the gallery to see my designs.
