Hello! I am new here.Going crazy trying to lay a runner on my old stairway. It curves on the bottom and there are three pie shaped stairs. Has anyone managed to lay a runner that looked decent? This runner has a pattern down the sides. I have tried folding etc to line up the pattern but I am sure there is a professional trick to it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A little late but hopefully this will help someone. Pre-made runners MUST be cut and seamed on the tread of the step to ensure that it meets the previous and next step at the proper location. The runner should always be square to the riser, thus meeting at a certain point in the middle of the tread. If there are 2 pie steps creating a 90 degree turn, the cuts are usually 22.5 degrees to create a 45 degree angle on each step for instance.
