    Guilty! Sometimes I get up and press seams or do something on the PC and not bother putting the other shoe on.

    I also prefer to sew barefoot but I also loose the shoes the minute I walk in the house.

    I have always sewn barefoot. My mother did, too. Now that my ironing board is in another room and I have issues with my feet I sometimes put back on my Crocs to go iron but I never sew with them on.

    I hobble around the house with one sho off and one shoe on, too. Like you, it just seems I have better control when I can feel the foot peddle.

    Barefoot here. I sew on my featherweight and need my big toe free for the button on the pedal.

    I'm barefoot or just socks to sew, too. I think I have better control over the foot control that way. I don't wear shoes in teh house anyway. Much more comfortable.

    In my socks and I always turn the foot pedal around, I find it easier to avoid cramps if I apply pressure with my heel rather than my toes.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    Phew, glad to know I'm not the only one that runs around the house barefoot. We live in Las Vegas and don't have but about 2 months of cold weather so I'm barefoot almost all the time. We have tile floors and they are so nice and cool in the hot, hot summer. I really do own shoes...lol.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    If I am in the house, I am barefoot. I wish I could be barefoot at work.

    I wear Ugg Boots in Winter, I suffer from the cold and wear them in the house and while sewing, but in Summer I am always barefoot, I can feel the pedal better, especially on the old Singer machines.

    I always sew without shoes. Sometimes socks or ballerina house slippers but never shoes even at classes. Teresa

    I sew with a soft sole slipper on. I'm covered if I have to get up and use the rotary.

    I'm another one that kicks the shoes off the minute I get in the door. I absolutely HATE shoes! I sew barefoot when its warm and socks in the winter.

    Shoes have always came off at the door...if it's been a rough day, the bra comes off too, lol!

    Have to sew without shoes and without the contacts in.

    I can sew with my cowgirl boots on. Makes no difference to me.

    I'm in. Can't 'feel' the pedal if I have my shoes on. At least I'm not "p.g." and barefoot. LOL

    No shoes. Just a habit that I kick them off the minute I sit down. Sewing machine, dining table, lounge or computer desk. I'm usually barefoot in the house but always wear them outside.

    No shoes here, either...unless I am my quilt group meeting...then if I have on slip-on shoes, the right one generally comes off there, too...lol..
