I know that. Both my mom's brothers held the 33rd degree. My aunt's husbands were 32nd degree. My mom's best friend was active her whole adult life in both Eastern Star and "White Shrine." I never really understood the White Shrine.
There was a bunch of them in first pic I doubt my dad was a shriner yet as he was in the back rows with the rest of the guys.

As Uncle Bob noted - several companies have/do make these. While these are generally pure white lamb skin, some lodges in some states may present an apron trimed in blue when a man is raised to Master Mason. The aprons worn by Lodge officers, or (state) Grand Lodge Officers more especially, can be quite elaborate ...

It sounds like the apron you have is in excellent condition! I wish Grandma had taken that good of care of GG-pa's and G-pa's aprons. I see no problem with scanning it.

Gosh, it is amazing what you find on the Internet !
Spent some time yesterday looking up "stuff".
You can even find the "secrets" or at least that's what some sites claim.
It is very interesting.

Women are allowed to be masons now (so I hear). I just saw something on the history? channel. They interviewed a lot of different cultures, all masons, and it showed that women were allowed to join/participate now. :)

Nope women can't join Masonry. It is a "fraternity" after all :)

What the program was probably talking about was some of the appendant bodies of masonry that are for women. Those are not free masons.

Altho women cannot be Masons, my collegiate "sorority," and several other National Panhellenic organizations, are technically fraternities. They were founded by fraternities for women's membership....
