    I'm starting to look for a PM apron, and Patrick Craddock at The Craftsman's Apron sure does some nice work. Has anybody ordered from him?

    My lodge has gotten PM aprons from him, I’ve discussed a reproduction with him, and a nearby TO lodge had their officers aprons made by him. Incredible doesn’t really cover his work.
    And he’s really nice, too!

    I do not have one of Patrick's aprons, but know a few that do. Very nice work. I have seen them worn at the annual Grand Lodge communication in Tennessee and in blue lodges. I haven't checked the TN code, off to do that now.

    They are really nice, and Brother Craddock is a great guy. He can do them in GLoTX size if you want.
    The one thing you may want to be aware of is that GLoTX has a number of regulations about aprons in our laws. It's not really enforced at all, but technically you can't have anything remotely interesting on there.

    Yeah, that's the reason I asked in the Texas forum. I've read the GL law on apron design, and wanted some input from other Texas masons. I emailed Br. Craddock, and he sent me pics of two that he's done for GloTX jurisdiction Masons. Beautiful work, although I suspect that the second one may be pushing it a little with all the fringe. Might not do to have a nicer apron than the GM, lol. Guess I'll pay a little more attention to PM aprons at Grand Lodge this year.

    FYI, here are the pics:
