Freedom Star United Loves Our Veterans

Freedom Star United, focuses on military and patriotic quilt fabric, kits, and patterns. Two of their sons and one daughter-in-law have served in the Marines. Patriotism is “near and dear to their hearts.”202 The Grangers are on the road most of the year, attending 30-35 quilt shows a year. “Road to California is our favorite,” said Deb. “The people are great.” Wherever they go, they look for a veteran to give a patriotic quilt to. Deb remarked, “Our hearts are with the military.” At Road 2016, Deb and Duane spotted 88 year old Morrie Hegg from Apple Valley and presented him with one of their patriotic themed quilts. Mr. Hegg is a World War II veteran, having served in the 11th Air Force Army Air Corp in Alaska. He came to Road with his wife and daughter who are both quilters. This was their 15th year at Road. They come in an RV and park near the Ontario Convention Center. Mr. Hegg says he joins his wife and daughter to “carry their stuff.” Needless to say, the Hegg family was “blown away” with their gift from Freedom Star.201 Thank you Morrie Hegg for your service and to the Grangers and Freedom Star for your support of our veterans.]]>

    What a nice story and vendor too. It was nice to learn about the kind gift they gave to a fellow Veteran. We need more people like that.
