We're pleased to announce an exciting new membership package, which will be available from late August 2021
What is Premium Plus?
Premium Plus offers all the benefits of Premium - including exclusive inspiration, articles, offers and discounts - but with the addition that each calendar month you can choose to be sent one item from a selection of craft magazines and gifts.
Premium Plus costs £6.99 monthly. And there's no long-term commitment - you can cancel at any time.
What are the craft magazines and gifts on offer?
The selection of items offered will vary from month to month but will always include at least one papercraft magazine, one sewing magazine, one knitting magazine and one crochet magazine, each worth at least £6.99. This means Premium Plus is perfect if you'd like to sample a wide range of craft magazines from month to month, without the commitment of a traditional magazine subscription - and with all the benefits of Premium.
How do I sign up?
You can compare packages, upgrade and downgrade through the My Plan page. (If you're visiting from a desktop computer, this will be under the drop-down avatar menu at the top right of the screen. If you're on mobile, you'll find it in the mobile navigational menu.)
How to choose your gifts
Once you've signed up for Premium Plus, you'll find CraftWorld offers an additional menu option - Choose Gift. (If you're visiting from a desktop computer, this will be under the drop-down avatar menu at the top right of the screen. If you're on mobile, you'll find it in the mobile navigational menu.)
On this page you'll be able to see the selection of gifts on offer for that calendar month, and make your selection. Once you've chosen your gift for the month, it's not possible to change it, so choose wisely!
You must make your choice by the end of each calendar month. If you do not make a choice, we will choose an item from the selection for you.
Gifts will be sent out in the first week of the following month - so for instance selections made during August will be sent in the first week of September.
What's the commitment?
Your commitment is only month to month. You can cancel a Premium Plus membership at any time through the My Plan page.
What if I've already paid for Premium?
If you have already paid for Premium and you want to upgrade to Premium Plus, your remaining Premium credit will be offset against future Premium Plus costs. So for instance, if you paid £20 for an annual Premium membership six months ago, you would have £10 credit against your Premium Plus membership. The first month of Premium Plus would be paid for by £6.99 of that £10 credit so there would be no additional charge; in the second month the remaining £3.01 of credit would be used and you'd be charged £3.98; from the third month onwards you'd be charged £6.99.
Why is this only available to people who live in the United Kingdom?
At launch, Premium Plus will only be available to customers in the United Kingdom. This is because international postage has been massively disrupted over the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit, and we want to ensure we can offer a high standard of service at a competitive price for our international customers. We hope to make Premium Plus available to other parts of the world soon.
What happens if I cancel?
If you choose to cancel your Premium Plus membership, it will continue to run until the end of the month you've currently paid for and then automatically revert to a Standard, free CraftWorld Membership.
Please note that Premium Plus entitles you to one gift for each calendar month of membership. Therefore, if you have selected a gift for the calendar month in which you cancel, this will not be sent because you will already have been sent a gift for that month of your membership.
(As an example - let's say you sign up on 10th September and choose the September gift on 20th September. You then choose the October gift on 3rd October but due to a sudden change in circumstances you have to cancel before the monthly renewal on 10th October. In this case you would not be sent the October gift, as you would already have been sent one gift for your one month of membership).
