If you take a look at this website you'll see the different feet for some makes
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx

I assume you mean what are the different feet used for?
General purpose foot will have room for the needle to swing through wide stitches, but enough foot to hold the fabric and move it through against the feed dogs. This is the one you use most.
A straight stitch foot will have a little hole so that the needle only goes through a small area and the fabric can't move to give a neat plain straight stitch.
Plastic wide toe foot is good when you need to see what you are sewing onto such as applique (sewing a piece of fabric onto another with a wide satin stitch).
Teflon coated foot is good for slippery fabrics, it grips well.
A roller foot is great for textiles like leather and vinyl which don't feed nicely.
Then there are lots of feet for turning the fabric to sew it such as a rolled hem (these come in different widths so you can turn 2mm, 4mm or 6mm for example).
Felled foot (like the side seam on your jeans) joining two fabrics in a felled seam
Then there are feet for quilting and darning where you need to move the fabric smoothly in different directions, these will be small foot area and open stitching space usually.
Walking foot is a special one, part of the foot moves because a part of it clips around the needle bar and the up and down movement then activates the foot so its little teeth help to move the fabric from the top to supplement the normal feed dogs below. Pfaff machines actually built this function into their machines some years ago to give even feed from top and bottom. Great for quilting thick fabric sandwich or sewing together fabrics that want to slip or not feed smoothly.

There is also similar info here http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ which may help you to see the different uses and feet available.
Most manufacturers will sell their machine with 4 or 5 of the most used feet but often have more to buy aftermarket. And many feet between companies look very alike so if you have a clip on foot from one brand it may work on another machine with a clip on foot.

I hope that this is what you were asking.

Bird nesting on back stitch, changed tension and cleaned, any suggestions


Hm, if it is occurring only when reverse stitching, that may be a machine problem needing professional service.

Usually, bird nesting results when the upper thread is not firmly seated in the tension disk. Be sure to Always Raise the Presser Foot when threading the upper thread. Try to make sure the needle is in the highest position before beginning to stitch.

Could possibly also be the needle. Try a brand new needle or a different kind of needle, ie quilting or embroidery needle rather than a universal needle. May be an incompatibility of needle & thread.

Check that the tension is correct--both the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

I know how to attach my ruffler foot but my needle keeps hitting the plate .what do I need to adjust to keep the needle from hitting the foot


You may need to move the needle position left or right. Try a different stitch length. If the ruffler foot is installed correctly and needle is in the correct position this should not happen. It is hitting left/right/forward or back of the ruffler needle space?

Bar that hold the sewing foot is loose


If the comment already posted did not answer your question, here is another thing to check. If the screw that attaches the foot and ankle to the presser foot bar is tight, and the foot can still be moved, it is likely that the presser foot bar has become loose within the lifting mechanism. You could save yourself some trouble by taking your machine to a sewing machine repair shop, but if you would rather avoid that expense, do the following. Remove the needle bar and take up mechanism cover on the left side of the machine. This is held on by a single phillips head screw on the back side of the machine, which, with the back of the machine facing you, should be on the top right side of the machine. Once this cover is removed you will be able to see two vertical metal shafts, one is attached to your needle clamp and needle, and should be in the front. The other is the presser foot bar, and will be behind the needle bar. There should be a small allen screw about halfway up that shaft that tightens onto the bar. With the presser foot properly positioned on the needle plate, tighten this allen screw. Don't tighten the screw too tightly, as this can damage the presser bar, just make sure it's nice and snug. Make sure the presser foot raises and lowers properly, and re-attach the needle bar cover.
Hope this helps.

Threading a needle


1. Turn handwheel toward you 2. Raise presser foot up 3. Pull thread from spool and pull taut under each tension disk. It's important to "feel" the "click" if you are new to threading machine 4.Make sure after all tension disks threaded that you put thread behind the slot in back of your needle. It's a little groove to hold thread securely. 5. Pull thread toward you 6. Thread needle eye front to back 7. Pick up thread under gently pull taut in front of you 8. Lower presser foot and turn handwheel toward you. A loop will form under the needle where needle thread has picked up the bobbin thread. Carefully take both threads that have made a single loop and pull toward you 9. Put threads under presser foot just lift put threads under and pull 5 -6 inches thread BACK and UNDER that presser foot Done! Hope this helps, my friend! Jimmy

What are he different feet used for?


The main types of feet are:
1. ZigZag foot. This has a wide gap for the needle to move from side to side and the two pointy ends of the feet curve upwards. This is used for ZigZag and decorative stitches,
2. Straight Stitch foot. This has a small round gap and one side is usually wider than the other. It's used for straight stitching.
3. Rolled-Hem foot. This has a spiral in the middle and is used for rolling and sewing hems neatly.
4. Zipper Foot. This has no gap as the needle goes to one side or the other of the foot. It usually has two attachment points for snapping on to the shank, depending on which side of the zipper you are sewing.
5. Invisble Hem foot. Used for making invisible hems. It's hard to describe how it looks. Mine has extra white plastic parts around it and some kind of screw to make adjustments as to width etc.
6. Buttonhole foot. My buttonhole foot is white and has numbers along one edge. The size of the buttonhole can be altered, using the numbers as a guide.
7. Edging foot. This has a strip of springy metal on the left side and is used to guide the material into the path of the needle in order to sew close to the edge to prevent fraying.
8. Rolling foot. This has rollers and is useful for sewing thicker materials or quilts etc. It is similar, but not as good as a walking foot.
9. You might also have a Teflon ZigZag foot, it's the same as the zigzag foot but made of white plastic. It's used for sewing vinyl and leather materials.
I think that's it, hope this helps!

Sounds like your tension is too tight and the thread is pulling your needle. Also, make your that you needle position button is on center. If it is on left or right it will cause your needle to snap.

Cording foot


a quilting bar attaches to one of the feet usually in the back and is attached by a little set screw. it is used as a guide to ride a long a previous line of stitching or a design to keep lines of stitches the same distance apart.
I'm familiar with 2 different types of cording feet. one looks like a zipper foot... very narrow and a notch on the side of the foot instead in the middle. to make cording ...fold a narrow piece of fabric in half and place yarn or cord along the inside of the fold.next place folded fabric with yarn inside under presser foot. but up the foot next to the yarn bump on the top side of folded fabric and stitch as close as possible. the second kind has a groove on the underside of the foot and the yarn bump follows this groove stitching is also done close to the yarn. some concideration in needle placement is needed depending on the thickness of the yarn or cord. always hand turn the needle up down the first few stitches to make sure the needle does not hit the foot.adjust if needed.

Changing needle/thread


Yes, you have to remove the walking foot, the threading mechanism does not have electronic recognition of different feet so when you add a foot that has a different fitting you will have to remove it to self thread.
