Could someone tell me how/when these p-feet are used?

"More Fabric Savvy" gives you basic guidlines for how to sew on a LOT of fabrics, including which presser feet to use. All of those feet you mentioned are included for different types of fabric. For the month that I've owned the book, I've been using it to choose the presser feet and stitch type and have had good results.

Here's some instances off the top of my head. I know there's more.
Walking foot: Fabrics that that don't feed through your feed dogs evenly, like knits on some machines. For quilting, so that all the layers don't shift.
Rolling foot: Velvets, so you don't crush or get hung up on the nap.
Teflon foot: Vinyls, faux leathers, or other "sticky" surfaces.

I've seen a teflon foot recommended for Goretex as well, not that that's a common thing to sew.
I've seen people recommend rolling foot for knits too, but since I don't sew many knits, and don't have a rolling foot, I can't comment one way or the other.
Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!
