    Warning for bare feet quilters

    I did about 6 hours of free motion practice on my old Kenmore without shoes. In the middle of the night I awoke to excruciating pain when my foot tried to stretch out again. Thought I was going to be in the high foot pedal position with pain in the foot forever! It lasted 3 days. I now wear a suportive shoe and take breaks. Best wishes for those of you with strong bare feet. I don't wish this on anyone!

    I always sew barefooted. Even when I'm standing doing my long arm quilting I am barefoot. I love the feeling of carpet underneath my feet. Although in the winter time I do put socks on to keep my feet warmer.

    I am always barefoot here living in Pa. When it gets too cold like today, I wear slipper socks with them little grippers on the bottom. It helps that I don't slip on the pedal. It just taking getting use to.

    Barefoot or wearing socks. I wear shoes pretty much only when I go out of the house (and sometimes not even then).

    I always quilt barefooted, when I leave the machine I put on my birki's with socks since my floors are tile and are very cold.

    I wear socks summer, spring, fall and winter all the time. I wear socks to bed every night. I cannot stand to walk around on bear floors.

    I always sew barefoot to. I can not sew 1/4 inch if I have my shoes or socks on.

    No, I do that all the time, during cold season, I wear socks. I have always done this, I can actually feel the pressure I apply when barefooted.

    You are not alone. I often work with one shoe on and one shoe off working the pedal. It just seems like I have better fine control when I can feel the pedal under my foot, with my foot. I do just wear thin socks sometimes to ward off frost bite but a little heater blowing on my feet lets me keep to the bare foot style of quilting.
