I was digging through my mom's old sewing box and found a bag of feet that I have no idea what do. I know one is a zipper foot and another is used for cording, but other than that I have no idea.  Huh

Thank you.

Edit: I realized number five is hard to see so here is a closer picture

1. zipper foot
2. buttonhole foot
3. gathering foot maybe
6. looks like a blind hem foot

Sorry, don't know the rest.

7 looks a bit like a free motion quilting foot, from this angle.

#4 is for quilting. Not sure what it's called, but it goes in another foot and helps your lines be parallel to one another.
See this blog - it shows an older one, but it's the same concept:

3 is definitely a gathering foot.  The slit in the foot is to put the fabric you're sewing the ruffle TO into, so it won't be gathered (just the fabric under the foot will be).

#5 stitch in the ditch foot
#8 Three strand multi cording foot (could be two but I think it is three.. hard to see)

#4 slides through a walking foot or a quilting foot. You slide it back and forth until you get the width you want.
sew a seam in a quilt, decide how far away you want the next seam. Slide the bar until you have the desired width and move the bar so the end sits on the last row of stitching. This is measured from the needle to the row of stitching. the bar goes to the left of the needle.
