Meet The Team


Director, Bridal Seamstress

"The dress was sprinkled with fairy dust by the creative Gemma Owen from Stitched Up"

Stitched Up est.2008

I studied Fashion Design at City College Coventry for two years, after deciding university wasn't for me, I began working in a local sewing shop & trained to be a seamstress.

I spent the following few years working from home, contracting work from several local businesses. 

Stitched Up opened its doors in Kenilworth in June 2015, having absolutely no background in business, or life..really. We've built up an incredible client base and Stitched Up is growing by the second. So much so, from January 2019 we will also be trading from our second shop on Smith Street in Warwick! 

I specialise in Bridal Alterations and am fortunate enough to work alongside some fabulous bridal shops doing what I love every day.

Head Seamstress

 Emma studied Fashion Design at City College Coventry for two years back in 2006. She went on to graduate from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2012 with a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Technology.  

Emma has a wealth of knowledge from working within the Fashion Industry, her previous job roles include: Visual Merchandiser, Ladies Knitwear Design Assistant, Womenswear Design Assistant & Team Manager.

What Emma doesn't know about garment construction really isn't worth knowing. 

Somewhere within all this madness Emma took the opportunity to spend a year travelling around Australasia and South East Asia exploring new cultures. 


Most recently Emma has taken on a new venture in the form of her very own business Hide & Seek. For more of what Emma has to offer check out her business Insta @thisishideandseek
