    did the machine come with a manual? If so it should show pictures of all the feet with their names!

    I'm curious too. I have seen some of these in the thrift shops and didn't know what they for.

    I would help to know what model of machine these come from. Some old machines didn't do anything more than straight stitch. I could be wrong but it looks like you might have a cording foot, a darning foot, a ruffler, a zipper foot (maybe more than one kind?), a special zig-zag foot or applique foot... Do any of them have uneven bottoms, etc? I just realized, I know a more about sewing than quilting which is a really funny statement. I am so new to quilting it takes me forever to complete a block.

    Picture 1 Center foot looks like a gathering/pleating foot, with additional plate to the left of it. To the right of the pleater is a rolled hem foot. Looking at the plastic feet, it looks like the one on the left is a 1/4" foot.
    Picture 3 looks like a piping foot
    Picture 4 is a zipper foot.

    I found this site which might help you.

    go to the singer site and look up the machine by model number and then attachments.

    I see a ruffler and a blind hem stitch roller (upper right corner)

    The one in your hand, fourth picture is a zipper foot. I like it better than the new ones because you can loosen the bar and slide the foot over to sew the other side of the zipper without taking the foot off. You would need an adapter to use the clear, snap on feet.
