Illustrated Talk – “She once did a pretty deal of fine Needle-works of many Colours”: Quaker Schoolgirl Stitching in Seventeenth-Century London
October 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm£10
Join us for an illustrated fundraising talk with historic researcher and podcaster Isabella Rosner in exploring the surprising contradictions in seventeenth century needlework made by Quaker girls and women in the Society of Friends.
This is a blended event with both in-person and Zoom tickets available. Zoom attendees will have a recording made available to the for two weeks after the event, which is especially useful for those who have to miss all or part of the live event for any reason.
The talk will also include a handling session looking at some of our own samplers.
Tickets are £10 and will go towards funding the care and conservation of our collection.
