Vienna Quilt Shop Becomes ‘Quilt Shop of McLean’

After 25 years, the Vienna Quilt Shop, home of the “Quilt Doctor®,” will be moving, effective April 1, 2013. The new signature, “Quilt Shop of McLean” will be located at 6724 Curran St. in McLean.

The larger fabric design center will continue to provide distinctive personal detailing, restoration, and custom work in contemporary and vintage textiles. The work encompasses such recent projects as restoring a puppy chewed antique quilt, reweaving a civil war coverlet, and arranging school memorabilia in quilt form to cherish forever.

To fully ensure customer satisfaction, all custom work at the atelier is done under the watchful eye of Clara Sue Ashley, a textile specialist with the company for 16 years.

The Quilt Doctor’s® owner, Nancy Preston and her professional staff extend a warm welcome to everyone. For more information call 703-281-4091 or 800-281-4010.

Donate Old Car to County Police

Do you have a vehicle that is in working condition that you no longer want or need? Would you like to help your public safety community and receive a tax deduction at the same time? Consider donating your vehicle to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Every year, the agency uses around 20 cars to help train and prepare officers for the rigors of police work. Your car could be used as a faux suspect’s get-away car, helping officers with their precision pursuit driving techniques. Later, when the car is no longer in driving condition, it will be cut up (training how to cut into crashed cars), blown up (training for our Explosive Ordinance Officers) or shot (used as a prop in an active shooter scenario). Nothing will go to waste and your contribution will serve many constructive purposes.

For more information on how to donate your vehicle or if you have questions contact MPO Tom Beckman at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course, 703-818-1924.
