    No shoes for sewing or driving. My shoes also seem to magically come off when I'm teaching.

    I am always barefoot, unless I go to the store etc. I can only sew barefoot.

    Stocking feet for me! No shoes. I want to feel the medal when I sew.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    member of the barefoot club here too....a few women at my quilt guild are the same way...we kick our shoes off and sew right on
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I sew shoeless too. In the winter I MIGHT wear socks, but I've been known to kick them off too. A case of "blue toes" won't stop me from sewing.

    No show either, I need to feel the pedal. I have been to a class and the instructor had heels on and sewing. That just blew my mind.

    I'm the same way. It is either bared or socked even when I go to a charity all day event. In that case when I am not home, I have some sort of slip on shoes that comes off when it is time to sit down and work. If I need to go iron or what not, the shoes just slip back on just in case of someone leaving something sharp on the floor.

    I can't sew with shoes at all. EVen when I test the machines in the store, off comes the right shoe! I also rarely wear any shoes or slippers in the home. I think this comes from my dad, who spent time in Japan.

    I can sew with or without shoes on. Depends on where my cockatoo is at the time. Had them off yesterday & he bit my heel so I had to clean up blood off the carpet, wash my compression sock & then stitch up the hole he made in it. He's sneaky & tries to build a nest under my chair, then gets aggressive if I move. He got a "Time Out" yesterday until he calmed down.

    I always wear shoes or slippers - a friend who used to sew barefoot, had a needle surgecally removed from her foot and had to wear a "boot" for 2 weeks - and was not able to sew or drive for the entire time.

    Barefoot is the only way for me. I tried with my house slippers and it just doesn't work!

    I sew with both shoes off most of the time. If I'm dressed to go out and I sit back down, then I sew with one shoe on and one shoe off. I have always done my sewing this way, made home-ec SUCK. Teacher didn't want you taking off you shoes (but I used to any way) My mom used to say it was "The Hilly Billy" coming out in me, my standard answer was always the same "SO".
