Your sewing machine should have the following feet:

You should also have spare needles of the appropriate size for the threads you will be using and enough bobbins so that you have at least enough to have one each for the threads you intend to use.
Do not worry if your machine does not do the optional stitch and, or does not have the optional feet as there are workarounds.
