When cutting pattern pieces from a large piece of fabric, I often have trouble with the excess yardage hanging off the table pulling at the fabric portion being cut. I solved this today by using large binder clamps (very inexpensive at your office supplies store) to fasten the excess fabric to the edge of the table. Voila! Fabric stays put!

Great tip - I hope I can find some which work with my cutting table (actually a door on legs)
