    I was looking at the latest CLOTILDE catalogue and as I was looking at page 37 they are showing a "Pedal StaII" being used by a lady wearing her 2 inch pump.

    It caught my attention because I had to give up my high heels years ago, and I never would have worn them while sitting at my machine. But it made me smile.

    Gee. I take off my shoes when I sew. Maybe I can "feel" the pedal better.

    barefoot or socks when I sew, can't even sew in slippers.

    and I NEVER wear heels.

    Isn't it strange how comfortable/sensible shoes get better looking the older we get??

    I was about to say the same thing, You can't pay me to wear heels unless its a super special occasion, and even then I try to find flats

    No heels for this girl!! They hurt my feet way too much. I do sew with shoes, mostly my running shoes.

    Another bearfoot gal here. Just the thought of putting on a pair of heels makes my knees ache. in fact I no longer even own a pair. Have to say when I'm at a sew in or workshop I sew with my shoes on, it's a challenge but I don't think others would want to see my beat up feet. May in Jersey

    Being diabetic I have to keep shoes on all the time, but doubt I could sew in my heels, they are 3"-5" usually!

    I too "drive" barefoot (not my car, my sewing machine) I spend most of my time walking around my house with only one shoe or slipper on. I'm currently taking a FMQ class at my LQS and I am the only one in the class that does it barefooted.

    I used to never wear any shoe of any type inside. Now I have to wear slippers. Habit. Sure do not know how one could sew with heels or shoes. Guess it is whatever we get used to.

    Wear heels at the sewing machine? But of course, dahling, and pearls, too, and my hair is always perfectly coiffed.

    Seriously, it would never occur to me to wear heels when alone at home, not for any reason.
