Anna!

Anna!




For all her life, Anna has always tenderly been called Anniņa by everyone, and in no other way ever! Anna's is from Baldone, but she has been living in Sigulda ever since she got married — for 41 years now. She has raised two sons and a daughter. For the majority of her life Anna worked as a shop-assistant. Most vividly she remembers the time she spent learning how to make hats at the Sadzīves pakalpojumu kombināts (Consumer Service Group of Enterprises), where services such as sewing, photography, hairdressing, and knitting were offered in a single place. Of course, that includes making hats, which Anna was tasked with, plus producing knitwear.
For about two years now, Anna has been one of the seamstresses at the Visi Var (Everyone Can) store. An uncountable amount of things have been sewn during this time. Currently she is in the process of making felt bags and autumn knitwear hats for children and adults. It is a pleasure to her to work with new and colourful fabrics. The work Anna does requires attention and concentration but it gives her satisfaction to see the customer happy with the final product.
In her spare time, Anna is a loving grandmother to her six grandchildren — one grandson, who is already 22 years old, and five granddaughters. Three of her granddaughters live in Norway and it is one of her joys to visit them. Going on trips together and taking walks in the nature is their common source of joy in addition to, most certainly, cooking. Pancakes and pastries are the favourite treats of her granddaughters and a visit to the beach and a café is also a must.
Anna also loves being a part of Sidrabdancis — a senior dance ensemble of the Sigulda District Culture Centre which as of now, unfortunately, has not yet resumed its rehearsals. Therefore she remains active by spending time in her garden. Roses are beginning to bloom in the garden for the second time this season but most of all she likes the blooming meadows that can be found here and there in our beloved Latvia.
