The Topsfield Fair is known to attract up to half a million visitors. It is America’s oldest agricultural fair, and in three years the fair will celebrate its 200th anniversary.

Ania’s Marie rug won second place in its division.

The first rug Ania submitted, which you can see above, was her Marie rug — and it won second place! Ania was very excited because this is a rug she found particularly challenging to complete. The challenge stemmed from the amount of detail she put into it, including a lot of intricate shading. You can see a closer shot of some of this detail below.
