    I tend to have no shoes, just socks on.

    Shoes off. The right shoe is built up about an inch so I cannot feel the peddle or anything else with shoes on.

    I'm with you-I hate shoes and I used to get in trouble when I worked because I was always bare foot.

    Shoes come off first thing and stay off-

    I take my shoes off the minute I enter the house....needless to say I don't put them on until I go out either. SOOO, 99.9% of the time I sew it is without shoes. the other .1% it is cold and I have on slippers.

    Count me in too! We don't wear shoes in the house either, but do wear slippers in winter. More often than not, I can't find them because I've kicked them all off in my sewing room...You'd think I'd start looking there first!

    I wear shoes at all times, usually just slippers or flip-flops in the house. I don't like the idea of sweaty feet on carpet, and I'd be too lazy to keep taking shoes off for some process like sewing only to have to put them back on to walk across the room. While sewing I'm up and down constantly to iron and trim, and being barefoot would increase the chance of catching a pin in my foot, too.

    I have always had cats, and if once in all the years I have ever squooshed into a hair ball, that also would tend to make me dedicated to foot gear forevermore.

    I'm a barefoot G.R.I.T.S. but I've never done the one shoe off, one shoe on (I get a chuckle just thinking about the look on the postman's face!) However, my mother once went to work with one red shoe and one navy blue shoe on! When she retired they did a skit and it included 2 colors of shoe. I asked mom if she'd done the navy blue/black thing and she said not, it was not that subtle.

    I am usually barefooted. However I also reverse my pedal so its more like driving a car. I guess I do it so when my foot is at rest I don't have to take my foot off the pedal and I don't have to worry about sewing my finger. Does anyone else reverse the pedal.

    I had to chuckle when I read this as I do the same thing! lol I wear Birkenstocks year round, so just slip one off so I can feel the foot pedal.

    I sew either way, but have to wear supportive footwear in the house now, so usually it's shoes on since I'm up and down so often to the iron and cutting board.

    I am with you. I sew straighter when my shoe is off.

    I get dressed every morning and that includes shoes. I don't notice I have them on. I never ask anyone to take shoes off unless really muddy or wet. No carpet to worry about so the floors are easy to keep clean. I've been to some homes that I'm asked to take off shoes and my socks get dirty from the floors or I feel 'grit' on my bare feet. That I can't stand. If you want people to take off shoes in your house, have clean floors.
    Got fabric?

    Bare foot for me, no matter where I am. Home, taking a class or when I worked in the costume dept at the local university

    When I use my Featherweight I take my shoe off or I can't find the button on the foot control. When I'm at home I'm usually barefoot, much more comfortable.
