The Proper Bostonian Quilters Guild is a diverse and vibrant group of women dedicated to the art and appreciation of all things “quilt”. Our twice-monthly meetings (most 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at the Msgr. Donahue Hall, St. Theresa School in West Roxbury) are on the informal side and are always filled with food and fun!

The PBQ annual calendar includes a little of everything – monthly raffles, outside speakers and workshops, Show and Tell, potluck dinners and even overnight quilt camps in Maine and New Hampshire. We try to fit in one bus day-trip every other year to acquaint ourselves with every possible quilt shop near and far.  We issue a Summer Challenge to keep us busy during the vacation months. PBQ holds quilt shows every other year in odd years. Last show was October of 2017. The next show will be in the fall of 2019. A mini focused quilt show occurs in the fall or winter of alternate years.

Although the PBQ guild was founded by a small group of friends and continues to be on the small side (approximately 100 members), we have big hearts and a strong community spirit. PBQ’ers traditionally make a large bed quilt every two years and raffle it to raise money for local food pantries. An annual donation is also made to the New England Quilt Museum. Throughout the year members make teddy bears, pillowcases and quilts that are donated to various local organizations assisting men, women and children in need. Recent projects have benefited ConKerr Cancer, Linus Quilts, Casa Nueva Vida, the St. Matthew’s Food Pantry in Dorchester, and U.S. military servicemen and women.


We meet at St. Theresa School, Msgr. Donahue Hall, 40 Saint Theresa Avenue, West Roxbury, MA 02132 on the 2nd and 4th WEDNESDAYS of the month from September through June. New members are always welcome! Our dues are $25 per year and visitors are welcome with a $5 donation at speaker meetings.

Attention!  For Show and Tell, if you do not want your quilt's photo taken, it is your responsibility to inform the  photographer.  Otherwise, PBQ will assume you give your permission to take and display online a photo of the quilt shown.
