    I always sew with shoes on. There are rules against people not wearing shoes in stores where I live. Classes at library and community center would say wear shoes also. Sounds good to sew barefoot at home but in my case, I would find every pin I dropped in my foot! :)

    I am a no shoes sewer/quilter also. I feel that my feet are an extension of my hands and better coordinate with my brain.

    I have problems with my right foot and have to wear ugly orthopedic tennis or slippers all the time. I have friends that get mad at me when I ask if I can please keep my shoes on in their house. If I go without shoes it's very painful, they just don't get it.
    As for the bra, I' m 56 and still don't have enough to sag. If I put a pencil under my boob it falls on the floor , most people don't understand that concept either. LOL

    If I'm sewing with my Featherweight (I use my big toe) I just wear socks or keep my right foot bare. If I'm using my Bernina or Pfaff or any other machine with a flat foot pedal I wear my shoes. Hate being barefoot, if I could shower with my
    shoes on I would.

    Bare naked feet for me. I use either foot to press the pedal. Depends on where the furbabies are sleeping at my feet. :) I have a pair of thin soled slippers(like ballet slippers) I keep in my sewing bag for classes. I set up my machine then take my shoes off and put my slippers on.

    I am adding to the question, do you only sew with one foot or can/do you use both feet?

    No shoes. When I was first driving it was the same-felt I had better control over the gas pedal with no shoes.

    My shoes are parked inside the front door and are never worn around the house. When its warm, I sew barefoot. When its cold, I wear soft-soled slippers.

    I sew in bare feet or stocking on if it is cold. Can not control the foot press with shoes on.

    Maybe they are not true friends if they cannot accomodate your foot problem? I understand the boob concept
