How do I say "sewer" in Spanish? Not the pipe that waste water goes into, but a person who sews on a sewing machine?

I need to say "industrial sewer", as in "industrial sewing machine operator" in Spanish, like you might see in a job description. All the online translators seem to think I'm talking about a drainage sewer, not one who uses a machine on fabrics. Maybe there isn't a Spanish noun for that, or it's just worded differently than in English. And this is about sewing heavy fabrics, so maybe "upholstery" comes into it?
So I'm interested in how to say it, and any differences between the following terms, all related to sewing machine use:
1) "industrial sewer"
2) "industrial sewing machine operator"
3) "upholstery sewer"
Thank you for your help.
