Default Am I the only bare foot quilter out there?

It has gotten colder here in DE, and I got concerned about my cold feet, then I realized that when I enter my sewing/office nook I leave my slippers at the door. I tried to use my machine with my slippers on, it is an entirely different feel. 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 take off my sandles when I sew at my machine. I don't like the feel of having shoes on when I am pushing the machine pedal. I feel I have better control of the pedal without shoes on.

I have some lighter weight & very flexible slippers I use to sew with. Definitely too cold to go barefoot this time of the year.

I take my shoes off as soon as I walk in my door, I always sew barefooted...I do once and awhile wear my socks if it is cold, since my machine is in front of a large picture window...

Always sew barefoot. Can't control machine well with shoes now.In FL almost always barefoot. One of the small pleasures of being retired.

I am a barefoot kind of girl. Now that I am older I do put on socks occasionally to wear around the house.
