    bare feet always.I do have slippers if its cold. but I run around in bare feet in the house most of the time. Drives my DH crazy. In the summer and early fall I run around the lawn and drive in my bare feet. Now I will admit the lady who does my pedicures yells at me about my rough feet. I totally love feeling wet grass on my feet and smushing the dirt in the garden between my toes.

    well, i went to a doctor, a foot doctor, podiatrist and all he did was make me some soft padded things to wear on my feet 24/7 but i just couldn't wear them they were so terribly painful. but he did tell me not to buy shoes with a hard arch support that i need a soft arch support, but just couldn't wear those things he made me. so i went from wearing expensive nike shocs to just a cheap shoe and it feels actually better.

    HOO RAH!

    And, in honor of my sister=in-law, mother of a Marine, I have to share her new life motto with you, JUST to try to MAKE YOUR DAY!

    Life should not be a jouney to the grave with the intention of arriving in a well preserved and attractive body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, pepsi in the other, body used up and worn out, screaming, WAHOO! WHAT A RIDE!

    do I hear an AMEN??? :D

    Woolyboogers? We call them Dust Bunnies around here. It's cute and not so alien sounding. I've seen some under my bed as big as a cat, mainy from all the dog fur. I can never seem to keep up with them. I think they multiply like bunnies, too!

    Anyway, I'm a barefooter most of the time. On a real cold winter day, I'll wear socks.

    I prefer bare feet, I hate shoes and socks, the thing is the floor in my sewing room is cement and gets way to cold in winter. So I usually wear slippers, most of mine have the hard soles on them, I forget I am wearing slippers and half the time end up out in public with them on.

    I have not used a pedal in 6 years. I only use my hand control lever on the machine. Have a Singer Quantum XL 1000 and love the control it gives me. I always would get a cramp in my toes or foot. Love my slide button. From turtle to rabbit and inbetween

    I sew barefooted or with my slippers, never any other shoe. I like to feel like I have more control too.

    I'd drive barefooted too if it weren't against the law. :lol: But I always wear sandles around the house because I can't stand for my feet to get dirty. Go figure.

    Funny you should ask that!! I have to be barefoot. I feel better using the petal barefoot. I have tried with shoes on but it is just not comfortable for me. Are there any others like that out there?

    I have shoes on but I do not use my foot pedal. I find it too hard to control so I use the hand button on my Kenmore 19606. I am sure once I get used to my machine again I might switche over to see if I can use it since I have a different set up now. This week will be the first time I have sewn with it in 2 years do to a move and settleing in.

    Usually barefoot, sometimes with socks, only if my feet are cold. I also feel like I have better control.

    Me too.... bare feet preferably, socks if it is cold. If I wear shoes it feels so foreign to me cuz I need to feel that pedal.

    warm quilt hugs, sue

    ^5 on the question.. yep.. bare footer or socks.. Shoe gets in the way..
    I don't drive anymore, not used to shoes.. maybe that is why.... But, come to think of this whole question.. I have always been a "casual" sewer!!

    This is different but only we would understand why we do what we do, I have to have socks on to feel the pedal.
