Sigrid Juchtmans

"I have lost my heart to the Lech Valley". That doesn't just sound like a love story, it actually is one. Sigrid Juchtmans says it quite deliberately and smiles a little sheepishly. She is just in love - with the valley she has known since childhood. "I used to come here on vacation with my family," she says in her charming "Belgian-Lechtal" slang.


The 37-year-old Belgian has now lived in the Lech Valley since 2011 and has built a life here with her husband Tim and their two daughters. In the small picturesque Grießau near Häselgehr the family lives in a house with garden surrounded by wide fields and the Lechtal mountains. Sigrid and her husband have created a small refuge that fulfills their personal wishes and expectations: a quiet life and a healthy and secure future for their family.

Sigrid herself seems calm, balanced and down-to-earth - today she is doing well. But her health was not good for a while. A burnout gave the trained nurse a hard time. The daily routine of a nurse and being a mom with all the trimmings were too much at some point. But Sigrid showed courage, pulled the ripcord and hung up her job. "Creativity helped me to find myself again," she says today. She still draws her strength and energy from it.

She has also used her creativity to build up her very own business. Sigrid is the owner of "Sternchenlieb Tirol" (Opens external link in new windowwww.sternchenliebtirol.com) and creates beautiful, delicate pieces of jewelry from flowers. Her love for the Lech Valley and nature constantly inspire her to create new designs and her glass flower jewelry is a special one-of-a-kind - handmade in the Lech Valley. Together with her friend Simone Knitel, she also opened a small craft store - "Lechtaler Naturhandwerk" in Bach some time ago. "I always work there in the morning and then in the afternoon I am at home with my children. On weekends, I can also often be found at craft markets."

Another source of inspiration for Sigrid is always the exchange with other creative women, here in the Lech Valley. "We exchange ideas and this often results in great ideas that we would like to implement in the future," she says confidently and wishes that the Lech Valley would remain true to its authenticity. To achieve this, she says, the regional producers, local traders and creative minds in particular need to be actively supported.

For us, Sigrid Juchtmans has long been one of these hard-working creators and she is already leaving her very own mark on us in the Lech Valley. We are happy that she enriches our valley with her creativity.
