Since rosins are one of the bases of chewing gum and other types of tacky, sticky stuff, I'd suggest a "Gum-Out" kind of cleaner designed for getting gum out of carpet and upholstery. Heating the solidified rosin with a blowdryer or heat gun may help too, so long as you take care not to get it too hot and singe the fabric.
Rosins are also used as solder flux, so a solder flux remover may work also.
As with any solvent, though, make sure you test it on a hidden surface first to make sure it doesn't have an adverse effect on anything. I've used some flux removers that have a tendency to craze certain types of plastics to the point where they'll fall apart if you look at them funny.
