    Sock only for me. I can't feel the pedal and can not estimate the pressure if I have shoes on.

    Glad to know I'm not alone! I've always sewn barefoot.

    That's funny...I like to kick my flip flops off and drive barefoot too! :lol:
    In my classroom, if the principal walks in, I start thinking about where my shoes might be. I don't even realize I have them off until someone walks in. My feet seem to have a mind of their own! haha

    Sew in flat sandles or bare feet. Learned to drive in a little van in bare feet and passed my test first time at the age of 50 lol

    You are not alone. I always have shoes or slippers, usually slippers, on in the house.

    When I sew on my Featherweight, I have got to be barefoot because the pedal only has room for your toe. I've tried wearing shoes but I don't get much accomplished because next to the toe pedal is another something??? that stops you from pushing the toe down if you have your foot on both of them.

    I am adding to the question, do you only sew with one foot or can/do you use both feet?
    Only one (right foot) it's kinda like having someone elses foot it's not to helpful when it comes to sewing

    No shoes in the house, no bras unless company, and no one goes into the sewing room without a prior invite.

    I do too. I like to feel the pressure I am using on the pedal. But I do have to rest my feet every so often, they can get real hot after a while and swell up from the heat.

    I never learned to dance in shoes either. All our school dances were "sock hops" in the gym.

    I saw a video on not wearing a shoe when using a presser foot. The reason being is that it gives you a better feel of the speed that you can control with your foot. Also it was said to place a book (telephone book or some thickness that is comfortable to you) in front of the presser foot so your foot is elevated and you won't get a cramp in your leg as well as have better control.

    In did that at my last workshop.It felt funny walking with only one shoe on. It was a real hot day and my right foot swelled from all the heat from the day and machine pedal. Never again will I go through that type of pain.
