Covered Bridge Creations, LLC
Owner: Diane Grigas
The Covered Bridge has been around for about 40 plus
years. When first started, it consisted of a craft shop, then a yarn
shop was created on the top floor of the old chicken coop. It was a very
popular spot to get your crafting, painting, stenciling, quilting
supplies and anything else you could imagine for whatever you wanted to
There were 3 floors of all kinds of crafting ideas for
any craft you had in mind. At the time, this was the only place people
could find what they were looking for. All kinds of classes were held at
the store, from embroidery, needlepoint, stitchery, knitting, tole
painting to quilting. There were no other stores offering so much in one
place that carried the variety that Covered Bridge carried.
As time went by, new stores popped up and suddenly
people had other choices. The old store had a lot of competition, so
unfortunately it closed, except for the yarn shop. It was decided that
there was a need in the community for a yarn shop because so many had
closed their doors.
The yarn store was moved to the Amherst Plaza,
Amherst, N.H. back in 2000. It was sold in 2003. It continued to carry
quality yarns and other products and also giving personal service.
In 2008, the plaza burned and Covered Bridge suffered
smoke and water damage, losing all contents. There were two choices,
either to close or re-locate to another home.
The decision was made and we re-opened in October,
The Covered Bridge is now at:
141 Rt. 101-A M7
Amherst, New Hampshire 03031
We still give personal service, and offer many choices
of great quality yarns.
