     Long time resident Alida Langley has a passion for sewing and has taught classes at Withlacootchee Tech for 17 years and at Whispering Pines for 10 years. A year ago she opened the Alida Langley Sewing, Quilting, & Gift Shop at 7930 S. Florida Avenue (US 41) where she gives lessons in sewing, quilting, and machine embroidery.

     Her adult sewing classes take place on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 til 8:30. They are offered in 8 week sessions and cost $60.00. Students are encouraged to bring their own machines and learn how to use and care for them and how to take full advantage of each machines features.

     Students range from beginners to advanced and all learn to make their projects look as professional as possible (we are told there is a lot of ripping out) and the students we talked to are very pleased with their progress.

     If a student does not have a machine there are some available to be used.

     A basic sewing class for children (9 - 14) is held on Wednesday evening from 5:30 til 7:30 also in 8 week sessions and at a cost of $36.00.

    She also offers specialty classes in quilting and machine embroidery. To see some of her quilts go to the Gallery page. For more information call 352-726-1989 or email at Angel1955@embarqmail.com.
