  1. Daryl Reese says:

    I don’t usually wear an apron. I have fond memories of my grandmother wearing a bib-apron that fully protected her dresses. That’s what I want to recreate.

  2. Fran says:

    I love aprons. I wear them every day for cooking and baking. Now that I’m retired I find I cook more, I have several aprons. Some I’ve made ,some gifts, I even have one from my ancestors home…Italy

  3. Maggie P. says:

    I love to wear aprons, especially on a holiday. Since my mom and Grandmother have passed away, I have acquired some of theirs. They are treasures to me.

  4. Lynn Slabaugh Grate says:

    I only use an apron occasionally but I seem to collect patterns for them. I love the variety and possibilities! ~Lynn

  5. Linda Fliehman says:

    I love aprons…making them and inheriting them. My mom wasn’t much of a cook, but I started at age 7 (really!). My hubby’s grandmother wore them all the time and was the family’s quiet matriarch. When she passed away at age 92, my mother in law passed grandma’s aprons along to me. I love to make them and many of my friends have been recipients of my labors of love. I look at aprons as symbols of home, family, and wonderful memories.

  6. Diane says:

    I remember my grandmother always had one on. When I would go to her house I would go the the drawer where she kept them and get one to put on. I love the vintage aprons.

  7. Gina S. says:

    I like vintage aprons to hang in the kitchen. My daughter also collects them. So i’m always on the look out for them.

  8. Thelma says:

    I wear aprons occasionally but need to wear them every time I cook. I love vintage aprons and have all of my mothers. Some are so strained. I want to try to restore them.

  9. Teresa says:

    My mom made me an apron just before I got married and it’s so adorable. I got the fabric on a trip to Germany and the lace from my moms stash. I love it and it makes me smile every time I put it on.

  10. Dawn Cooper says:

    My grandmother and great-grandmother always wore aprons. I don’t remember seeing them without one on. Now I am always looking for aprons at antique shops and estate sales. When I see aprons like the ones these wonderful women wore I feel like a child again. I am a seamstress and I make aprons for my granddaughters to wear when we cook together. I hope to pass on the feelings that my grandmother shared with me.

  11. Mary Meroney says:

    My mother and both of my grandmothers wore aprons, and wearing one takes me back to those wonderful memories of all the great food and the love that came with it. On a lighter note, my husband thinks its sexy for me to wear one!!.?? I guess I’m just glad after almost 20 yrs together, he still tbinks I’m sexy : )

  12. Karen says:

    I live in my aprons since I am so messy in the kitchen. My grandmother always made and wore fancy aprons at the German club at Christmas bake sales.

  13. Ellee says:

    Aprons are a must-have for protecting my clothes — and if they’re pretty, that’s a nice bonus.

  14. MelodyJ says:

    I love the look of vintage aprons. I want a whole collection of modern versions of them.

  15. Katherine S says:

    I often forget to wear an apron until it’s too late! All of the aprons I have were given to me by my great aunt who was horrified to see that I wasn’t given any aprons when I got married (42 years ago), so she gave me several of hers. They are truly vintage, but I still use them.

  16. mary mac says:

    Yes, I just love aprons. I love to collect vintage ones.

  17. Josie Holbach says:

    I actually gift and sell aprons. Yes, we wear aprons in our house. I make huge pockets in them so that we can go from room to room when it’s time to clean so that we don’t have to keep running back and forth for supplies.

  18. Judy Brock says:

    Aprons are something I make for my daughter she is the apron wearer of the family. My fondest memories of aprons was a drawer in the kitchen my mother had that was full of them. They were so pretty and I remember playing with them when playing around as a child. :)

  19. Liz says:

    I love using aprons! I use them when I’m fixing meals or baking.

  20. Marthie says:

    Just love my apron. Will never say NO for a new one

  21. Jennifer Wright says:

    I wear them when baking. My daughter and I have matching aprons for when we have plans to destroy the kitchen… I mean… Bake some treats.

  22. Alice Ann says:

    I do use an apron, in fact I have one of my mother’s that I cherish! I am in the process of making an apron now. I will be part of a wedding gift and will be given along with handwoven dishtowels, a casserole carrier, pot holders and a table runner. Will it help a new bride? Or maybe I will be starting another woman off on a career of loving aprons!

  23. kbo says:

    Aprons, yes I wear them. I have cleaning and cooking types and a couple of “Don’t Get Dirty, Just Too Pretty” ones to hostess with. Grandma wore full aprons and my mother wore half aprons… I wear both!

  24. Marsha says:

    I never wear aprons in the kitchen and I don’t remember anyone in my family wearing them either. I do wear a gardening apron, when I remember where I put it. But my bff is an apron junkie and I love making them for her because of the the way she lights up when she gets another one. It’s helped me polish my sewing skills to the point where I can now start a business making pet accessories. But those aprons! How I love to make them! (By the way, I have to start adapting them to wrap all the way around said bff because she somehow manages to spill things on her backside.)

  25. Ellen says:

    I don’t wear aprons, but my daughters do. They love to have a special one for different occasions and holidays. My mother didn’t ever wear and apron either, but I remember my grandmother wearing one every time she cooked.

  26. Joyce Boutette says:

    Aprons, in our family, go back generations. When teaching my 8 year-old granddaughter to sew a request was for an apron. She loves to help mom in the kitchen and wanted to look just like mom, so an apron it was and she sewed it with pride. I remember my grandmother always kept a clean apron on the hook behind the door so that if someone came to the door, she had a clean apron to greet them. Mom’s Christmas request each year was for a new apron which was used as her gift wrapping. Mom catered wedding when I was small and I had a very special organdy apron to wear when I serve small trays of goodies before the sit-down dinner. Aprons always bring back great memories.

  27. Pam says:

    I have fond memories of aprons. Whenever I think of my grandmothers, they are always wearing aprons. I don’t have one myself, but I’d love to sew one!

  28. jacki says:

    I don’t wear an apron but I do have an apron that my maternal grandmother made and wore all the time. I have it hanging on the wall.

  29. LethaGD says:

    I never used an apron much until I got married and actually started cooking more. They really save my clothes from getting stained and dirty, I guess I’m kind of messy. I look at the vintage apron patterns and have very fond memories of my mother and grandmother wearing them. sniff sniff….

  30. Mama Lusco says:

    I love to wear aprons in the kitchen, doing housework and in the garden. My grandmothers and great-grandmas always wore aprons at home, so I remember them as I tie one on :)
