    No shoe on the right foot. OK for the left when sewing.

    after getting through more that a couple pages, I did find that there is one or two other than myself, who prefer to wear shoes.......I guess it's just what one gets used to doing.....but I am a shoes-on quilter.........

    I can't sew with anything heavier than a sock on my pedal foot. Used to do medical transcription. Again, had to take my shoe off to use the foot pedal.

    I only wear shoes when I absolutly have to. And even then I go with a minimal foot covering . I make my own shoes out of leather pieces to just wear around where I have to wear shoes in the warm weather.

    So how many others out there sew without the shoe?
    Well, I always sew without my shoes, but then I am an Arkie, lol....barefoot just feels better and natural to me.

    Don't sew barefoot but with socks on. In the house I always have slippers on but can't get the feel for the foot with them on. I even bought a particular pair of slippers, just for sewing, but usually end up sewing in my socks.

    Well, I rarely wear shoes anyway, so YES, I sew with bare feet. I like to curl my toes over the back of the foot pedal.

    Never thought of this. I'm in the barefoot club or with socks on if chilly. Once I broke little toe & some said "that's what you get for going barefoot". Oh well, I'm barefoot probably 90% of the time.

    ALWAYS barefoot in the house, especially at the sewing machine.

    I'm always barefoot because I don't wear shoes in the house. Even when I worked in the alterations dept. of a large bridal store, we had to 'dress up' for work but at the sewing machines we all kicked off our shoes!

    I can sew with slippers but have a hard time with shoes (can't feel the petal so I press too hard) plus I hate wearing shoes.
