    Nope. In a bag between the mattresses. I will wear it one time. I want it to be white when i need it. I can buy another apron to wear to special occasions.

    Hmmmm.... I would think that if one worked at the Craft, the wear and tear on his apron would be apparent. To me, my pristine apron would say that I had not labored but had been a bystander when work should have been actively pursued.

    But, when it really boils down to the bare facts, isn't the apron a part of the external?

    Just my 2 bits worth. I would wear mine but, as a recently raised Master Mason, I'm not sure how it would be received. Still debating with myself over that.

    I have worn mine, as well, when I attend and participate in Masonic Funeral Service.

    I've only worn mine at Installations of Officers because it is a "dressier" occasion.

    I wore mine for the three degrees but that's it. Most Brothers don't seem to pull it out until called to refreshment.

    I got mine and wore it though all three degrees. But I really didn't receive it until I was raised.

    I got mine during my EA. That's the last time I wore it. I've thought about getting it framed. One of our older brothers always offers to fill out the bib once you are raised because he can write in caligraphy. Its very beautiful.

    I am saving my plain white lamb skin for the coffin. I did purchase a MM lamb skin apron with my name and lodge number on it from craftsmansapron.com. It hasn't arrived yet but I look forward to wearing it.

    Will those yellow like the plain white ones. That's the main reason no one in our lodge wears their white one. Over time it will yellow if not kept put up.
