Sewing machines, regardless of the make or model, come with an assortment of presser feet for both utility and decorative sewing. In addition, many optional sewing machine feet are available. One of my very first optional accessories was the piping foot. I was making several taffeta bridesmaids dresses; yes I made bridal wear in a former life, and needed many, many yards of matching piping. Well after several disappointing samples using my zipper foot, I contacted my sewing machine retailer. They were very happy to sell me a piping foot and I was absolutely delighted with the results. That started my love affair with presser feet. Next I bought a gathering foot, a ruffler, several hemmers and a bias binder. They all made my life easier and made a huge difference in the look of the completed garments.
Today there are even more optional accessories. We use a variety of utility and decorative presser feet in our projects. Go to the resources page to download a list of presser feet; it includes descriptions and diagrams.
For the best information on the presser feet available for your make and model, check your sewing machine manual. It usually includes a list of optional sewing machine presser feet, often with diagrams or pictures. You can also inquire at your local sewing machine retailer for specialty feet available for your sewing machine make and model. Additionally sewing machine manufacturers include extensive lists of all their accessories online, so for a quick look here are the direct links to the accessories pages of the major sewing machine manufacturer's.
