Hi all,

I just acquired an adorable Brother Galaxie 221 which came with the original accessory box and cabinet. Inside I found the following presser feet, and was wondering if anyone could help out and tell me what they are...

I haven't quite figured out how to post pictures but here's the link to my craftster album where they are located:

Thanks in advance to everyone for their help.

With just a quick glance at them, I can tell you a few of them.

Picture 2: The middle one is definitely a rolled hem foot.
Picture 6: Binder attachment (you can use it to attach bias tape to an edge/seam)
Picture 7: Zipper foot

I would have to dig out my research books to be able to maybe tell the others.

Picture 3 looks like ruffle foots. but I'm not 100% sure but almost.
Picture 5 looks like the foot I used to make hems in sheets. (I sewed        sheets in a factory for yrs.) Though mine was an industrial machine with a very high shank these look like home sewing machine feet. Don't understand how you'd attach it as is unless there is another part?

photo 2 #1 and #3 one is probably a flat fell foot and one might be a cording foot. Hard to see the photo. Does it have a groove on the under side?
photo 2 #2 definitely a rolled hemmer
photo 3 #3 is for machine sewing buttons on. It's an open toe foot.
photo 4 looks like a pleater or gathering foot
photo 5 large hemming foot
photo 6 binder like for adding bias tape
photo 7 adjustable zipper foot
