    I was told that if you kick your shoes off and place both feet on the pedal it will keep you spine straight and hour back and hips will not get sore because both feet are even. I tried this and it really works.....

    I was born barefoot (so I'm told) and like to sew barefoot!When the weather is cold, I may ( or not) have on a pair of sockies.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    tee hee! I've often used the excuse that if God had intended for us to wear shoes, we'd have been born with them!

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    I have a knee controller (love it) but always sewed barefoot until I got a stray pin impaled into the ball of my foot! Now I sweep the floor regularly and I wear slippers!

    I always wear something on my feet, either shoes, slippers, or my crocs, especially after a couple of gals in my old guild had problems after getting needles or pins in their feet. One gal had to have surgery to remove the pin that had traveled up her leg.

    With my MS, I have a hard time feeling the pedal and that why I drive shoeless when sewing.

    Same with me. I always sew barefoot. I don't feel I can feel the pedal under my foot unless I do. Seems like we are all the same here.

    So how many others out there sew without the shoe?

    I am so glad to hear others say they kick their shoes off. I am mostly a stay at home person now so seldom put on the shoes I sew with only my socks on all the time It is so relaxing that when I do wear shoes now they feel heavy.

    I too enjoy sewing without shoes! My mom picked on me when I did this at her house!

    I do most things without shoes. The minute I come home my shoes come off. I don't spend a lot of money on shoes and don't like to wear them because I rarely find any that are comfortable. I loved living in HI; they don't make you wear shoes everywhere.
