    #7 looks like a zipper foot
    #2 looks like it's for attaching bias binding
    #6 looks like it's for straight stitching

    Photo Number 3
    Singer Edge Stitcher Attachment 36865 Low Shank

    I remember these others but am not real sure. Photo Number 6 may be like my present-day Bernina where there is just one fine hole in the center of foot for precise stitching.

    I think Photo Number 5 is the bias tape maker.

    It will be interesting to see what others have to say about these old feet.

    #1 is a tucker, ruffler or gathering foot, sometimes the names are interchangeable.

    #2 is a binding foot. Thought that was a new invention didn't you?

    #3 is an edge joiner, for joining lace, ect, to the edge of a garment.

    #4, I don't know, but will find out if you want.

    #5 is a rolled hem foot.

    #6 is a straight stitch foot.

    #7 is a zipper or cording foot.

    Have fun, happy sewing!
