    I haven't. But because I was curious, eh...let me refrase that... because I like to be well informed , I Googled. His name comes up in combination with (upholstered )furniture,home decorating, luggage,even blouses. Most of them mention his great use of color,but I couldn't find any info about him designing fabrics.

    Wasn't he the one who designed the dresses of Carol Burnett when she had her TV show? And Cher?

    Collection Of Carol Burnett's Costumes
    The costume which Bob Mackie designed for "Went with the Wind" speaks so much about his caliber and capabilities. Leading-lady Carol Burnett said about this ...

    I have the opportunity to buy some of his fabrics but didn't know what "type" of fabrics Bob Mackie is/are?

    The person that has them isn't very good at describing. I'm interested only in quilters fabrics and I'm thinking he didn't have a part in any of those? hhmmmm....

    If you would like to see his style, go to QVC.com, he is on there quite often.

    I'm just wondering why somebody would have his fabric? (I found somebody that is selling off her fabric collection and she said some of the fabric is by him)... I have no clue what to expect and am buying it site unseen - which can be scary.

    Yes, Bob Mackey had designed those fantastic costumes for Cher and for Carol Burnette - remember Carol said...."I saw this in the window and just HAD to have it" (it was from Gone with the wind segment and she was wearing draperies! Also, He designs for the shopping chennel for everyday women now. Either QVC or HLN - I forget which one

    I found a listing of his clothes on QVC but when I put the web address here, it takes you to diamond ring. Go to the QVC website and type Bob Mackie in the search bar.

    I used to have a Bob Mackie gown. No, it didn't have beads anywhere but the neckline it nor was it cleverly designed to show everything BUT my belly button. It was more of a lounging caftan. Loved it though. It was extremely comfortable and beautiful. Perhaps the confusion came from when Marie Osmond mentioned his name as being one of the people that inspired her in her efforts to design fabrics.

    He used a lot of sparkly beaded sequined fabrics. Even if he embellished them himself I doubt if he started with cotton.

    I'm betting if he had anything to do with quilting cotton, someone on here would have heard about it or found it, so my opinion is that it wouldn't be quilting fabric.

    On QVC or HSN he has beautiful fashions for up to 3x. Of course if you're talking about the creations he did for Cher well, that's a different story. Not very many us could fit into those even if we could afford them.

    I bought an Egyptian themed silk scarf for my mother for Christmas.
    It had fabulous colors. The only bad part in my opinion is that it had
    Bob Mackie in big letters on one end.
    However if that is his color style I would be very interested in any
    fabric line he develops.
