Mum’s Sewing

Soraya Ocampo

Soraya is a single mum who came to the UK around twelve years ago. She has worked as a cleaner for the last few years, her experience and excellent work has led her to work in the maintenance department of a very important building. She takes her time off to keep working on Mum’s Sewing, her personal and professional projects.

Although she feels happy and proud of her job, her main dream is to have her own business one day. This is why she started working on her sewing skills, as she enjoys creating her own fashion items. For example, she has designed beautiful dolls for children and bodysuits for babies. Still, her work has lately been focused on nightclothes such as pyjamas and sleep masks.
