About Darling Rose

About the Owner

Before she knew how to drive, Jessica Darling knew how to operate a longarm machine. Before the age of 30, she started a quilt shop catering to the hip, modern crowd in Austin, Texas. She developed a cadence of her own, and because she's Italian, it's very loud. After a four year sabbatical, she decided to resurrect her quilt shop in the heart of Corpus Christi, Texas, a few miles away from the beach. Her partner/soulmate Austin Rose operates a tattoo shop a few doors down, and their daughter Mirabelle comes to work with mama- hopefully her first words are "fat quarter!"

Jessica's mission is to show the quilting world that a little color can change your life, and that it doesn't matter what your age, social class, or any other sensibility is- anyone can quilt! Join her in her mission to make our quilting community a joyful, vibrant place where all are welcome!
