    I would ban shoes if I could. However, getting old seems like I need the shoes just to keep from feet from hurting so have learned to sew with shoes on.

    I am absolutely a barefoot sewer. I take my shoes off before my coat when I get home. I even sew barefoot at classes. I do find the occasional pin the hard way but it worth it. I hate shoes.

    Went we were kids it used to drive my grandma nuts that we were all running around the house barefoot in the winter. She was always knitting us slippers that we never wore unless we knew she was coming over. I am barefoot year round. No socks or shoes.

    I am a shoeless quilter. I don't usually have shoes on in my house. I just should live somewhere I could go without shoes all the time.

    Since I never wear shoes in the house....I'm part of the barefoot group. I do occasionally wear flipflops to sew in when I'm having a rare day when my foot is slipping off the pedal for some reason...
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    Hey Ladies!!! Just going through the posting. There are a lot of us that belong to the "Barefoot Sewing Club". I didn't know there were so many of us. YEAH!!!!!!

    Sew in the dining room now, and there is carpet. Put I haven't run into a pin yet. Hubby has found one with his shoes on, but he only reminded me that "I should be more careful with the pins". Living up north with winters most of the year, has been interesting. Most of the time I hobble like many of you. Bob, the mailman, won't ask about the foot again, I'm sure. But it sure made my day.

    shoeless, toes curled over the end of the footpedal to hold it in place.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    Count me in. I've just read this is a better way to control foot pedal.

    Shoeless here too. In the winter, I have 2-3 prs of socks on for warmth out of habit. My compression stockings, then a pair of anklets, then a pair of fuzzy warm socks. But I have to slip on my mules (all 3 pair fit into them)to cut and iron or my legs, hips, and lower back get sore from being barefooted standing too long. Have to support the arches.

    Count me in. Normally I'm always wearing my shoes, but when I sew I have to take them off. I can't get the correct steady pressure on the foot pedal with shoes on.

    As for pins, I keep a magnet handy and run it over the carpet or tile in the area I'm sewing in. I got into this habit when my boys were very small. It's amazing how well a magnet works for that.

    depends on the weather! cold weather requires at least socks, sometimes slippers....in warm weather you might see me barefoot or in a pair of flops!

    I sew without shoes & many times alternate my feet. Of course I am always barefoot in the house anyway.

    Put a piece of textured shelf and drawer liner under your foot pedal. It won't slide around that way

    Ditto for me too! Right shoe is always of when I am sewing but mostly both shoes are off when I am in the house.

    I wear shoes --- and this reminds me to update my DTP shot ---on top of Washington state having a pertussis epidemic (whooping cough). I keep my shoes on after narrowly missing the top of my foot when my hands did a carpal tunnel spasm while I was using my rotary cutter

    I sew in my slippers. They're soft enough I can feel the pedal and I can get up and go wherever without worrying about stepping on a pin or something else on my way from the shed to the house. In the winter they're warm and in the summer they're comfortable.
