I have no idea what the sewing/fabric scene is in Rio, but I'll be there on business starting next week. Any suggestions for a sewing-themed shopping excursion there, if I can steal some time away?

Jealous...
It seems everyone wears bikinis there, whatever the figure, so there may be little fabric....

I have no idea about fabric stores down there, but you should keep an eye out for Manequim pattern magazines!

Sorry I missed your post or I would have recommended you get in touch with one or two bloggers in Brazil, one of which is an American who moved there recently.

But how did it go?
