The top one looks like a cover for the feed dogs. Hard to tell what the others are. The picture is a little blurry.

Rox is right. the top one is a feed dog cover so you can darn and do freemotion.

the foot with the little blue toes is for sewing on buttons.

the "silver" foot is for sewing on zippers.

The bottom one looks like a zipper foot. It isn't the kind of long ago and I have one like it, I hate using it. The back part sticks out when I try to sew close to a zipper and I can't get that close. Whoever designed it was way out there.

Oh, Barb, I so agree! I gave up on it and dug out the one to my old simplicity machine the last zipper I had to sew. The button foot I never tried to use. Always sewed them on by hand.

What was I thinking???
:lol: :lol:

the eyes are not young. :?
the experience is ooooooooooooooold. :lol:

many, many moons ago when the earth was young and rivers flowed free and clean, my mom and i made all my clothes.

mimi and stitching are soooo right. the snap-on zipper feet do not perform as well as the old fashioned screw-ons. the button holder-downer comes in handy, though. i use it for machine-tying.

screw on zipper feet.
They were so much nicer.
