    No shoes here also. I wear sandles around the house, kick off my right sandle to sew and the put it on when I get up to iron. That way I don't have to worry about pins. I also have to kick my shoe off if I am in a class. Just don't feel like I have control with a shoe on.

    Couldn't work if I had to wear shoes. I have to have my socks though.

    I CANNOT sew with shoes on either. When I took a class the laughed at me every day. I don't wear shoes in my house so I never sew here with shoes on.

    I can sew with or without shoes. In the winter my feet are always cold so I have to wear at least 2 pairs of socks and shoes. In the summer it is a different story. Jeanniebelle

    I'm one of your crowd.....in fact at the quilt classes I have to remove my shoe and some get a chuckle out of me hobbling one shoe on, one off to the ironing and cutting boards. It works best for me. The big toe is my work leader!

    I don't think that you are alone in this one! lol Even when I am sewing and it is cold in my sewing room, I will have one cold foot and one warm one! lol Have you tried sandals? I found that "crocs" aren't bad or leather soft sole slippers work well.

    This is so funny. I am not supposed to go barefoot but I do and I never sew with shoes on. My shoes come off as soon as they can and go on at the door when leaving. I cook and clean without shoes and I have been known to play the piano at church with no shoes.

    I'm with you on the bra thing. I figured I am past the age of caring if I sag a bit.

    I wear shoes for almost everything. I'm flatfooted and really need the support of the shoes.

    Course I always take my right shoe off when sewing whether at home, club or class. I'm so glad I'm not the only one!

    Well if you had spent 3 months on crutches from stepping on a needle when a teenager, you would not be around any sewing tools without shoes. The needle broke in my foot and took about 40 minutes to get it out in the operation room at hospital. Believe it or not, it is a common accident. My shoes are first thing on in morning and last thing off at night. When my grandchildren were little they thought I slept in them.
