    I also sew barefoot. In the house I never wear shoes. If it is really cold I may wear a pair of slides, but considering I live in Texas it is rarely that cold.

    Shoes are off first thing when I step into my house. Hate shoes. I'm a barefoot kind of girl.

    Well, I don't think I've ever tried barefoot. I usually have on comfy sandals in the house. I'll have to try barefoot....never thought of it giving me better control.....hmmmm

    OK, once again I'm the odd man out. I have a very funky pair of old pink suede houseshoes with rubber soles & I always sew in them.

    As a type 2 diabetic, I usually try to wear shoes, especially in my sewing room. If I went to the doctor with an infection from stepping on a pin, she would hang me from the rafters. So its shoes when I sew.

    Nope .... never .... shoes, sandals or slippers on at all times. Too many foot doctors have told me that foot injuries usually occur when barefoot and I drop needles and pins on the carpet in my sewing room....but that's just me and obviously I am in the minority. I see gals come to classes at m LQS and they are walking around barefoot. The owner has politely requested they put on their shoes.

    Last night I was demoing a serger for a lady and had to kick off my shoe, I explained to her I am a barefoot sewer and she said she was too. I think there are many of us out there.

    Barefoot or socks. I wear ballarina slippers in the house but still slip them off when I sit down. Am guilty of the one shoe on, one shoe off bit which my DGSs think is hilarious but the FEDEX/UPS guys don't bat an eye anymore when I answer the door!

    When I have the opportunity to quilt for long periods of time, the one shoe method is the best particularly when free motion quilting. Just the little bit of sensitivity to pressure on the machine peddle by my bare or nearly bare foot makes a difference .... for me.

    My sewingroom has a carpet and I am terrified of stepping on one of the many pins that get dropped or knocked off my sewing table so I keep my shoes on at all times.

    I have convinced myself I cannot use the foot pedal with shoes on so have always operated the foot pedal without a shoe. But like others no shoes in my house.

    I am that way too, I was sewing at work, a basket challenge making a small quilt to action, and I had one shoe off. someone called for help, and away I went. One shoe off, one on. They still tease me.

    I do everything possible without shoes. LOL But then, that's how I broke my foot so I probably should have learned something from that.............. but I didn't. LOL I wasn't born in shoes so I avoid them whenever possible. I would do the same with clothes except there are laws about that. LOLOL
