    can't sew with shoes on? :D I even kick them off if I'm taking a class or test driving a machine.

    I've never been able to sew with shoes on. I rarely wear shoes.

    You are most certainly not alone! My right shoe is always off at the sewing machine!

    I sew barefoot or with socks only. I think I have more control over the machine.

    Most of the time I sew with my right shoe off. I don't feel like I can control the petal with my shoes on. I never wear shoes in the house, just my comfy houseshoes. If it weren't for being diabetic, I would never wear shoes.

    :lol: I always take off the shoe that is pushing on the foot control. It doesn't matter if I am at home, in a store or in a class.

    LOL I have always sewn without my shoe on. Drove my Home Ec teachers crazy! And looks funny in a quilting class walking around with one shoe on & one shoe off. I don't care - it is the sewing that matters. :)

    Before I sit down at my quilting hoop I take off my shoes- it is much more comfortable.

    I found myself walking around my LQS in my socks a few weeks ago after kicking off my boots during class. Thought twice the next three weeks about what shoes I put on to make it easier to slip in and out of them during the rest of class.

    Cheers, K

    Bare foot,here. If it's really reeeeally cold, I'll wear a thin sock on my right foot, and a slipper on the other.

    Shoes, those are for city girls. lol No, I can't either, nice to no I'm not the only one. My dh fusses at me though because I'm an insulin dependent diabetic. But I keep telling him "I can't"

    Well it sounds like I am the only one that is different LOL. I wear cowboy boots a lot! I usually get dressed and head out and leave my boots on all day until bed. So I sew with my boots on LOL. I do put my foot pedal against the table leg so I don't continually chase it. But sewing with my boots on doesn't bother me :)

    Funny. I can't sew barefooted ... or do anything except be at the pool, or a beach, or in a hot tub barefooted. My best friend can't abide wearing shoes at all around her home. By the way, she has her foot pedal upside down when she sews.

    That's what makes life so much fun. We aren't all alike.
