West Side Sewing

West Side SewingOn August 1, 2000 we moved into a new era at West Side Sewing. A milestone we are very proud of. Shelley (Axline) Cervantes joined the West Side Sewing family as the Fourth Generation of Axlines, celebrating a 73 year history of home sewing retailing in Cedar Rapids. Since its opening in 1927, West Side Sewing has, for three generations, been a “husband and wife” team, working side by side, building a “value oriented” business. A challenge? Yes… whether you’re referring to building a “value oriented” business or a husband and wife working as partners… both had their moments.
