Teachers. Simplicity New Look believe strongly in the importance of education, and in teaching children life skills like sewing, which can be put to good use later in life to create and repair garments in a cost-efficient way. Our teachers' section provides you with plenty of useful resources to support your textiles classes, including a regularly updated list of discounted sewing patterns suitable for use in the classroom. We invite teachers to register a normal account first, and then apply to have teacher privileges granted to this login, allowing you to access the education section of the site.
