    always remove my shoes at the door. Hate shoes, wear socks in cold weather.

    I usually have socks on. I can't use shoes with a foot pedal.

    Same for me. Just can't seem to sew with shoes on. Did try some flexible slippers & they're ok but prefer just socks or even barefeet.
    Can be a problem at workshops though but I guess I will survive.

    I just took a FMQ class and I think I was the only one who slipped off her right shoe to sew

    I wear shoes sometimes, but often I sew in socks or slippers.

    When I am sewing, I am barefoot whether it is summer or winter. I like the control I get from being barefoot.

    Socks, shoes, slippers, sandals, flip-flops, bare feet - whatever is on my feet when I walk into my sewing room is what I sew in. No preference here!

    I have tried several times to sew with shoes on and always end up wondering why I can't keep my speed steady...kick off at least one shoe and I'm fine. I do keep socks on in the winter just because we have tile in some rooms and I hate to have cold feet.

    I am a 72 year old bare-foot quilter. However in the winter, I do wear socks.

    At my age, it's hard to walk barefoot on hard floors, so I wear Crocs (better than slippers, smile) in the house all day and I am used to wearing them while I sit at the sewing machine or stand at my longarm. My knees and hips don't hurt at all when I wear them.

    Eecha! That's what I usually wear - or sheepskin slippers (rubber sole).
    I had no idea so many people sewed with no shoes on! Never seen or even heard of it. I don't think it's very common here - probably too cold! I might have been living in a bubble - I definitely going to ask people next time I go to a quilt class!
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    If I'm home you can bet I don't have shoes on. I do keep a pair of crocs at the door to do outside work or walk to the beach. Inside naked feet.

    slippers all the time, except when I am quilting in my extra bedroom. My main sewing is in the basement and the floors are cold all year around. My extra bedroom is upstairs and carpeted.

    Barefoot, too. In winter socks in my old house. Now barefoot again in a very hot apartment.

Just couldn't do it, yesterday I bought slipper socks (with those little rubber things on the bottom) and am struggling to get used to them. What do you all wear on your feet when you are at your machine?
    I'm also in DE! Always barefoot. Can't stand shoes.

    Love going barefoot inside but my machine is in basement so floor is cold. Have to leave shoes on. My machine has a knee pedal not foot pedal.

    the only time I put on shoes is when I am leaving the house. The first thing I do when I return is to take off my shoes.
