In 1993, six women artisans living and working in the rural Delaware River Valley got together and brainstormed a way to showcase and sell their craft. Choosing their beloved Delaware Township’s covered bridge – the only existing covered bridge in New Jersey – as their symbol, Covered Bridge Artisans was born to bring visitors into the countryside to see high quality craft produced by artisans in their architecturally interesting studios. Joining forces and sharing the tasks of organizing the annual studio tour has nurtured lifelong friendships with each other and with all the folks who take the tour each year.
