The Sims Freeplay- Designer Rugs Event


The designer rugs event is back for 7 days! To complete this event you need to complete the fishing hobby 7 times within the 7 days to unlock all the rugs- quite a challenge this one if you aren’t already on level 8. You get a new rug at random each time you complete it, once you unlock a rug you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all.

If you completed this event before you will not get it again this time. If you got some of the rugs last time, you will only need to find the ones you have left to unlock this time, for example, if you unlocked 5 rugs last time you will have to complete the fishing hobby 2 more times this time to complete this event.

If you haven’t done the Fishing hobby yet you can find all the details here


You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the fish you have already found from the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the active tasks tab but you won’t get extra time if you start this late!


-have more than one sim working on it if you can! You can send a sim to a neighbours park and if you have build the beach or campgrounds you can also fish there!
-if you have completed the fishing hobby before do the 10 minute option over and over this will help you find them all quicker
-if you are not a level 8 yet do a longer option so your sim can level up as quickly as possible, you can find the level up % in this post
-remember to click start new collection at the top of the fishing hobby collections list once you have got all the fish, this post explains how to do that if you are unsure
-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly but you will eventually get the ones you need.

  1. I have been trying for two days straight now and I cant get the second two fish of the first row- I get the others but just not these- is this a glitch?

  2. Currently I’ve got 2 Sims fishing: 1 at my park & another at a neighbor’s park. I’ve built the campground & completed the Survivalist’s quest for the upcoming Outdoor event, as I’ve never completed it before. I built the suspension bridge so I could get a 3rd Sim fishing at the campground (my beach isn’t built yet) but it won’t let me fish there without clearing the trash. I haven’t done the Storytelling hobby yet but I figure I could get the trash cleaned up & fish…as long as I don’t click on the green unlock button. Am I correct? Or will I have to complete the Storytelling hobby before I can fish at the campground?

      • I think you’re correct. I have 1 Sim left clearing the trash & every time I’ve clicked on the fishing pier, it says something about completing the Storytelling hobby first.
        I should have known it wouldn’t be that easy! 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄🙃

  3. Hey, thanks for an awesome blog, it helped me a lot!

    I started a fresh game a couple days ago, and once I started the rugs event, my Fishing hobby XP changed drastically. This is what I’m getting from a 10 minute option once I enter the event:
    1-2: 90%
    2-3: 54%
    3-4: 45%
    4-5: 36%
    5-6: 18%
    6-7: 16%
    7-8: 13%

    Do you know if this is a new thing? I don’t recall this being the case for any other timed hobby events…

    P.S. If you never enter the event, you still get the old amount of XP…

    • Sometimes they are kind and increase the level up % when they become hobby events, they usually do this with the woodworking hobby, it will return to normal when the event is over.

  4. This has been awful I have been playing with 4 Sims on level 8 using the 10 minute option and there is 1 fish that I just cannot find. So far I only have 2 rugs and I had to spend LP to get a lucky spin to win them. I have never been so frustrated with a hobby before!!!!!

    • I’ve noticed the same thing in my game! I will get every fish *except* for the last one; the last one I need is one of the 1st row fish. 🙄😒 I’ve been making my other Sims do hobbies like crazy to get LPs for Lucky Spins. This hobby event is the 1st time I’ve ever used the Lucky Spin (that I remember anyway)!!

  5. Hi. Sorry, this is unrelated to this post but I didn’t know how else to message you.

    I was wondering if you know about the updates/events before hand, and if so, do you know if they will ever have the laundry event, and homestead and urban furniture events again? I wasn’t playing the game when they were originally released so I missed out, but I really want those items. Do you happen to know of any houses that may have them that I can build, especially the laundry items?


  6. I’ve been fishing for days and cannot get the second one in the first row, with three sims fishing 10 minutes at a time.

    • I had the same problem with the third fish in that row, I spent two days doing the 10 minute option over and over, in the end I had to use the lucky spin on that row, there must be a glitch on this event!

  7. Worst event so far, i think i have spend almost 100~150 lps to get all the rugs in time, made all i can to end this event in time so he never gonna show up again, everytime i got like 14 fishs in colection i needed to pay for the lucky spin to get the others. I don’t understand why firemonkeys thought it’s gonna be cool to bring back the annoying baby event and this together. Now that i have ended this event i know that the worst hobby by far is fishing. Hope that the survivalist hobby don’t get these problems of repeating the same thing over and over again when the event comes.
