    I never wear shoes indoors. I have have problems with my feet ever since I was a little girl. As soon as I walk in the front door my shoes come off. I went to my SIL to help her make some totes out of some of her GGM blocks and the first thing I did when I sat down was kick my shoes off and start sewing. My SIL was shocked! It is so automatic to me that I have never thought about it before. She went on and on about it and told all of my other SIL. I can't sew with my shoes on. I can do anything I want in my own home, but I am curious to see if anyone else sews barefoot.

    I never where shoes in my home either. I am always barefoot or have footsox on.

    When I did take a class I wore my shoes, but kicked them off to do homework. :) :) :)

    I always take my shoes off inside. Your shoes track in pollen and dirt, but the oils from your barefeet are not good for your carpet. I try to wear socks but right now it's too hot and humid, soooooooo I am barefoot!!!
    Wonder why she was so shocked????
    It's normal to me!

    I didn't know there was any other way :lol: :lol: I do usually have some sort of sock or footie on, and I do watch for pins and needles, especially at classes :shock: Now if I could just get rid of some other restrictive clothing.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Same here. I always take my shoes off as soon as I walk in the door. Actually I do that in just about everyone's house since I'm so used to doing it in my own house.

    That would be weird to sew with shoes on, how do you do that?

    I know it's stupid, but I can not control my speed pedal with my shoes on. Plus, I have foot problems too, and have never had a comfortable pair of shoes.

    Barefoot or socks, depending on weather.

    I have one sort-of friend who prefers shoes to be worn inside her house. :roll: I never can quite relax there.

    House shoes Eddie- are you like my spouse and have silky soft feet? According to him I have 20 grit sandpaper for feet. I hate shoes. I only wear them because I have to. (Just ask the girls at my office- they tell me to put my shoes on if someone is coming up the walkway)

    (and I can't stand if someone touches them- I have very ticklish feet.)

    I think you have more control with bare feet.

    The shoes come off the minute I am in the door! When it's warm barefoot, when it is cold either foot soxs or slippers (and they usually wind up off :wink: )

    Just went to a lecture by Sue Nickels and she says barefoot is her favorite way to sew, she can control the speed better.

    Craftybear - It was about machine quilting and raw edge applique. She has 2 books out on those subjects too, but this lecture truly covered the basics and she provided us with a hand out with notes of the points she touched on. I really enjoyed it.

    I find that my pedal slips if I wear shoes. I much prefer being barefoot. Even in the winter. I have REALLY tough feet... I end up occasionally having to sleep in special socks that help heal my cracked heels that develop from spending so much time barefoot. Even in my classroom at school, I take off my shoes the minute my students leave my classroom during my planning period. I wear clogs in the winter so I can slip off my shoes the minute I get inside the house.

    My dh is the ONLY one who is allowed to wear shoes in the house. My kids are just like me... barefoot all the time. My dh doesn't go barefoot more than a few minutes a day, unless he is sleeping at night.
