"leave me alone - I'm making me rum and noodles"

So, I found this bag with some stuff in it today.

I have searched the interweb, and - yay - I found out that I have a button foot, a blindstitch foot and a seam guide.

But the other things in my bag are somewhat of a mystery to me - so I hope you can tell me what it is and how to use the items?

The two red round thingies, the bended thingie and the plate thingie. Smiley

I'm just guessing but I think that the two red things are disks you put under your thread spools on the machine. And the wire thing at the bottom looks like a finger guard (So you don't sew up your finger) I think you attach yours on the needle screw. The plate looks like a replacement plate. Hope I've been of some help.

I think the bent thing is for following previous rows of stitching...I can't think of what it is called, but you attach it somehow to part of the foot and use it to keep your stitching lines so far apart (I could be  wrong, but the flat part of it looks  like what I use for this purpose).

I think the thing in the middle is an edge stitch foot. 

And the clear one might be a button foot.  You use it to sew on buttons.

That sounds like a good idea. I imagine that an attachment like that would also help keep your stitches as straight as the last line of stitching. I wonder what that thing is now.

I know this is late but the plate goes over your feed dogs so you can feed as you want to.
