Protect your Rug from Theft

Here is a great tip from

Before completing your rugs, using a permanent marker, write your name on one corner of the backing (use the same corner for every rug).  Then continue hooking your rug, covering your name.  If you ever have your rug stolen or if you ever have to prove that it is yours…you can pull out the hooking to reveal your name written on the backing!  Hooking your initials into your rug with wool or embroidering your name on the rug binding tape isn’t as effective anymore.  Someone can simply pull out your initials and re-hook the rug, or they could pull off your binding and replace it…but they certainly can’t erase your name from the backing…in fact, they wouldn’t even know it was there!
