Sew Anastasia has the class for you. We are offering a new class on Monday’s from 6-8pm. All skill levels are welcome to come out and join. This class is tailored toward you. This isn’t your average sewing class, you can create anything your heart desire. Whether that be a ballgown or a pair of underwear. There is no limit to what you can create! You will be able to work at your own pace and will have Anastasia there to guide you and tell you all of her secret tips and tricks that she has acquired over the last 20 years! When coming to the class, don’t forget to bring your favorite pair of scissors, a seam ripper, and matching thread! Fabric and patterns are not supplied, so make sure to pick those up as well!

The Sew Anastasia Studio Kickstarter


Anastasia has big plans for 2017, The Sew Anastasia Sewing & Design Studio is almost done but we need your help!  We are excited to announce that we have launched our first Kickstarter Campaign to help fund this new venture.  The new sewing studio, located in the ICNC Small Business Incubator, will be used to teach sewing & design classes for all skill levels and ages.   The Sew Anastasia Sewing & Design Studio will be an affordable place to learn sewing and design skills in a comfortable and professional environment.  The funds generated from the Kickstarter campaign will be used to purchase additional sewing machines, cutting tables, sewing notions, dress forms, and professional steam irons. All of these items are essential in our student’s success, we want them to get meaningful first hand experience.  Kickstarter Backers will help transform the Sew Anastasia Sewing Studio into a place where sewists can thrive creatively and productively under the direction of Chicago’s 2016 Best Local Clothing Designer, Anastasia Chatzka. We are grateful to all donations so we are offering 12 tiers of donations with exclusive rewards for each tier.  A few rewards that we are offering include a 4-week sewing class, starring in a Sew Anastasia YouTube video, or shadowing Anastasia from sunrise to sunset. Sewing is fading away in the world of mass production and fast fashion, lets change that!
