    One shoe while I sew. Sewing foot no shoe. I wear slip on shoe at homes so I can easily put the shoe back on. We sometimes have a scorpion sneak into the house.

    I hate wearing shoes, so the first thing I do when I come home is kick of my shoes. I do sew with shoes on when I'm in class though.

    I had to give up my barefoot ways several years ago due to plantar fasciitis. I try to sew with my Birkenstock sandals, but sometimes I just have to kick the right one off. When I get cramps in my arches I hop around a few times and put my sandal back on again.

    I sew exactly the same way - one shoe on and one shoe off. I am so glad to know I am not alone!

    I sew barefoot, as a matter of fact, I am most always barefoot. Don't like shoes.

    So how many others out there sew without the shoe?
    I am one that nevers wears shoes if i can get by with it. I really don't think I could sew if I had shoes on.

    Yep--that would be me, except that I do not wear a shoe on either foot.

    I like to sew shoeless, unless I have a pair of slippers that are lightweight and I can feel the foot pedal through them. I have several pairs that I ware when I quilt in my basement.

    I sew barefoot or with a sock on. When we're in TX for the winter, I spend one day a week quilting at the rec center and I take my shoe off then too. I seem to have better control of the foot pedal...

    I almost always sew barefoot, since I don't wear shoes in the house.

    I too kick off my right shoe. I can't sew otherwise.

    I also sew barefooted. Forgot to wear slide on shoes to a class, you would have found me shopping for a piece of fabric with one shoe on and one off, (store was closed, not that would have made a difference to me). Another time a teacher dropped something on the floor, she looked at me "Caught you". LOL
    I grew up down south and never wore shoes; love to go barefoot.
    Up north I have learned to wear slippers to keep my feet warm, only during the winter
    Had to suggest a student use a pin cushion as I would find pins on the floor every week after she left. No, did not step on one, but probably only a matter of time.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    Barefoot always even at guilds, classes or retreats. Cannot sew with shoes on!

    I do both, but the majority is shoeless.
