VIP Points is Eclectic Maker's way of saying a big thank you to all our loyal customers by giving you amazing rewards for shopping with us.

The way it works is simple:

  1. Earn VIP Points every time you shop with us.
  2. Spend your VIP Points to purchase sewing goodies from our shop that you can use for specific projects, or just to grow your stash!

Earning VIP Points

Every qualifying item purchased will earn you 3% in VIP Points for each whole £ of the purchase price, so if you buy £10 worth of qualifying goods you will have earned 30 Pence worth of VIP Points to spend later. Some items will have extra bonus points too from time to time, giving you your standard 3% PLUS additional VIP Points depending on the promotion.

Spending your VIP Points

Just like real cash, 1 VIP Point = 1 Penny to spend in store. So if your purchases earn you 100 VIP points, you will have gained £1.00 to spend in our shop next time around.

If you want to use your VIP Points to pay for items, just enter how many points you want to spend at the checkout. We have no minimum VIP Point balance, so go crazy and spend all your points in one go, if you want to!

Checking your VIP Points Balance

If you want to check how many VIP Points you have in your account then just login and go to My Account from the ACCOUNT link at the top right of any page. Just remember 1 VIP Point = 1 Penny to spend in store – it’s so simple!

Some Simple Rules

Even though you don't need to log in to buy products on our site (you can check-out as a guest) you will need to register an account with us and be logged in to earn and spend VIP Points.

You can earn and spend VIP Points on most things in our store. There are some exceptions though and the following items will not earn you VIP Points:

  • Sewing Machines
  • Classes & Workshops
  • Gift Certificates
  • Shipping / Postage

VIP Points may not be exchanged for cash, they may only be used towards qualifying purchases in our store.

Unused VIP Points will expire after twenty-four months and may not be used towards purchases after expiration.

We will review our VIP Points reward scheme from time to time and may find it necessary to change these terms and conditions. The scheme may even be stopped or withdrawn altogether. We will attempt to notify you of any changes and also update the information here to reflect this. Changes may include, but will not be limited to:

  • The rate at which points are earned from purchases
  • The redemption value or exchange rate of points already earned
  • The qualifying items to earn points through purchase
  • The items available to spend earned points on
  • Suspension or deduction of earned points in a customer's account

Thank you for shopping with us – have fun with your VIP Points
