How to Handle Stitching a Rug

The bi-monthly newsletter from Needlepoint Now is out and it has a great way to stitch a rug canvas, sent in by Ann.  Basically you roll the bottom of the rug around empty paper towel cardboard centers, then clip them to stay closed.  Then use frame weights to hold the top of the rug to a table.  You can sit at the table and stitch with the rolled end in your lap out of the way.  There's no need for a huge and expensive custom rug frame.  Very clever!
