Isabella is working towards becoming a textile curator after completing her Ph.D., a dream sparked by her internships and positions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Fitzwilliam Museum, and Colonial Williamsburg. Her passion for making historic objects accessible to all led her to create Sew What? a podcast about historic needlework and those who stitched it. Isabella writes, directs, produces, and hosts the podcast, which has thus far had 62 episodes, including discussions about Gee’s bend quilts, mourning hairwork, Māori weaving, schoolgirl samplers, and interviews with textile historians, makers, researchers, and museum professionals. Sew What? has had three formal seasons and is now releasing one-off episodes less regularly.

In addition to her Ph.D. and podcast work, Isabella manages the social media presence of Witney Antiques, Britain’s leading antique dealership of historical needlework and textiles. Isabella manages Witney’s InstagramTwitter, and Facebook, in addition to running a successful Twitter account dedicated to her research and objects of interest and an Instagram account celebrating embroidery from all regions and time periods. She is currently co-curating an exhibition and co-authoring a book with Rebecca Scott of Witney Antiques.
