What could you create with the craft supplies from our Scrap Store?

The Scrap Store is bursting at the seams with ideas for your next craft project. Whether it’s sewing, knitting, crocheting, papercrafting, die-cutting, painting or printing, the Scrap Store is a one-stop shop for all your craft needs. Take a look around for some unique gems and don’t miss the star donation, handmade by BBC One contestant from The Great British Sewing Bee Damien Wilton, who is also one of Emmaus Bolton’s regular volunteers!

Like the secondhand furniture, bric-a-brac and clothing on sale in the charity shop, many of the craft supplies at the Scrap Store are donated so they are one-off buys. So keep an eye on our rolling stock for some exciting surprises.

Many of the individual items on sale have been deconstructed from donations by volunteers at Emmaus Bolton’s two-storey Recycling Centre next door. So while you’re shopping, you’re not only supporting the residents at this homelessness charity, you’re looking after the environment too.
