Here are a few (links to) pictures of two presser feet that came with my sewing machine. (Sorry, I'm not allowed to post pictures yet.)

Side of presser foot on the right

Does anyone know what these are called and/or what they are used for? Thanks so much!

I'm not sure about the left one, but I'm pretty sure the one on the right is the rolled hem foot, which I have not yet mastered

yup, right is a tiny size rolled hem foot (master a 1/4" or bigger before trying that one, looks to be 1/8" size)

Left definately for a straight stitch only. A zipper foot would have a groove underneath, as would most trim & cording feet- very odd one.

The one on the left is I do believe a quarter inch foot. I happened to be on a site looking at machine accessories for a possible new machine I'm debating and saw this: http://www.elna.us/en/products/accessories/sewing_accessories/quarter_inch/

sure looks like it to me.

from what I gather a quarter inch foot is pretty much a plain straight stitch foot for when you need precisely a 1/4"  like quilting.

The right foot looks like a jeans foot.  THey are boxy like that and have a single hole to give more control to difficult fabric.  This is not a run and fell foot which would be off-set on the bottom sp that half the bottom would be cut out to allow the seam to feed evenly...this is strictly for jeans seams/hems.  The narrowed point is to help with narrow seams.

The second is a rolled hem, just as everyone has said.  If, when you use it you find that it makes a shell hem, it would be a roll shell hemmer.  I can never tell by just looking which hemmer it is without trying it out (sorry.)
