thread, but I think most cloth doesn't have strong enough edges for
this. You can squeeze some white glue through the hole and then press
the edges down. If there is a hole, it's possible to fill it with lint
from the cloth (if it is cheap cloth) and more glue. You can get some
tape or a sticker and work it under the cloth, get it flat on the slate
and then press the cloth down on it.
I wouldn't worry about a tear the size you describe -- a grain of rice.
