    Shoes or Not???

    I'm a quilter who usually kicks my shoe off so that I can really feel the foot pedal. Postman came today and said "what happened to your foot?" I had one shoe on and one off. I had to explain that's how I sew.

    So how many others out there sew without the shoe?

    I can't feel the right part of the toe pedal to push very well with my shoes on, so I'm another barefoot seamstress.

    I take my shoe off also. Actually I have my shoes off all the time in the house. Feels better.

    For 20 years I always sewed barefoot--couldn't sew any other way but lately it doesn't seem to matter. Still feels better without but at least now I can sew with shoes on if I have to.

    Always sew with bare feet or socks on I can't seem to feel the pedal correctly with a shoe on.
