Sew Little Time, Ltd. Quilting & Embroidery Shop, 34 E. Main St., Norwalk, will host Betty Cotton and her revolutionary method of reversible quilting where you "Quilt First Then Assemble".

A trunk show of Cotton Theory quilts and projects will be the backdrop for a lecture and book signing featuring the nationally known quilter and designer from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Welcome to the world of Cotton Theory Quilting where you will find three-dimensional seams, quilted appliqu, quilted embroidery, bobbin work and reversible binding. Cotton Theory quilting is a new and different way to construct your quilt. Unlike traditional quilts, which are pieced together, layered with batting and then quilted, Cotton Theory projects are quilted first, one segment at a time, and then assembled using Cotton's fold-and-finish procedures.

Cotton is a quilting entrepreneur who invented Cotton Theory quilting in 2001 and received a patent on it in 2004. She introduced her Cotton Theory as a guest on the PBS show "Sewing With Nancy." She has also appeared with Kaye Wood on her show "Quilting Friends" and with Sue Hausmann on "America Quilts Creatively."

Call (419) 660-0200 for more information on attending the lecture, trunk show and book signing. You may also e-mail Sew Little Time at SewLittleTime@neo.rr.com. Tickets are $25 and space is limited.
