The Big E: Awards Talk Part 1

As was promised last week on Ania Creative Design’s facebook page, the time to showcase Ania’s newest award-winning rugs has come! This post will show the two rugs that Ania submitted to the Big E Fair.

The Big E is an Eastern States Exposition, and it celebrates all six New England states. It has attracted as many as 1.5 million visitors, and has the distinction of being the fifth largest fair in America.

Check out the pictures below to see which two rugs Ania submitted to the Big E, and what awards they won!

The first rug Ania submitted can be seen above: the Paisley Hex rug. Ania was excited about this rug because this was the first time she attempted a fringe on one of her creations. The judges at the Big E thought she did a good job because they awarded it second place in its division.

For Ania, it is a huge honor to have been recognized for her work by such a big institution as the Big E. She was excited by the opportunity to show a few of her rugs to fair-goers, and now she is excited to share those same rugs with you, our reader!
