Sew Much to open in Delano

Cynthia Zajkowski has sewn since she was a child and most recently has done alterations at someone else’s shop. Now, she’s going to have her own.

“It’s just kind of a passion,” Zajkowski says.

She’s opening Sew Much at 535 W. Douglas in the former Travel Air building in Delano late this summer.

“We’re going to be a unique fabric boutique,” Zajkowski says. “It’s going to be mostly geared toward apparel fabrics.”

She’ll have some quilting-related fabrics and items as well.

Zajkowski will have 2,000 square feet, just over 1,200 of which will be the sales area.

She looked at several strip malls before deciding on Delano instead.

“I wanted to be somewhere that’s more interesting,” Zajkowski says. “I like historical-looking areas anyway more so than the new.”

Brady Miller of Occidental Management handled the lease, and Bree Kelley at Landmark Commercial Real Estate represented Zajkowski in the deal.
