West Side Sewing is using very deceptive sales practices. I called to order a part and was told it would be between $30 and $40. She said they would call me with the actual price BEFORE they ordered it so I could decide if I wanted to go ahead. When I went to pick up the piece imagine my shock when the price was over $98. I asked her why they hadn??t called me. Her answer was only, ??I??m sorry.?

I was told I had to take the piece even though I told her that was way too high. The least she could have done was charge me the higher $40 amount which I feel would have been fair. I will never shop in this store again when they do that to their customers.

Great store with a large selection of fabrics for every project. They also offer classes which is great for those who need some practice. Knowledgeable and friendly staff who will get you the answer your looking for if they don't have it already. Very well organized and easy to find your way around. Stop by you won't regret it.

I first discovered this sewing and fabric shop when I was in the market for a new sewing machine. Deciding that I preferred to buy "locally" I scoured the yellow pages (in the days before INSIDER!) and found that this shop had an array of sewing machines available. After speaking to some sewing friends, I discovered that not only did these people carry sewing machines but that carried one I was looking to purchase!

Off I went to Cedar Rapids and I must say this place was easily located! Conveniently located on 1st Street SW, it is on a main street and in fact has been in business for so long that everyone I met knew exactly where it was. So if you do in fact get lost...ask! Someone will point you in the right direction!

Walking into the shop, I noticed right away the vast array of machines on display. Not only did they have top dollar models for sale but they also offered free instruction for each and every sewing machine sold. I have not purchased anything from them in awhile, having fallen away from sewing lately so I am not completely sure this offer is still viable. I would reccomend calling before stopping in to see what offer is ineffect at this time, it will save you both time and gas in the long run!

In short, this is a wonderful store with quality sewing machines, fabric, notions and everything else you may need to be a 'fabric artist"! I would highly reccomend this shop to anyone with a love of sewing....it is not only well stocked but friendly as well and to this seamstress, that means the world!

PROS: ...nice quality merchandise throughout the store
CONS: ...may be a bit pricey for the average seamstress

Employees know what they are talking about. Very helpful with sewing machine repair, done on site. Higher quality fabrics and threads available. Store is small, but nice.
