Isabella Rosner is a current PhD student at King’s College London, where she studies Quaker women’s decorative arts before 1800, specifically 17th-century English needlework and 18th-century Philadelphia wax and shellwork. She is an expert in early modern women’s needlework and schoolgirl samplers. She also runs a podcast called “Sew What?” about historic needlework and the gals who stitched it.
