I live in Crystal Lake IL..I'm missing the foot pedal and the electic cord. I have a Brother sewing machine #LS 1217 Do you know where I can find replacements?

Almost any sewing machine dealer will sell a cord/controller set. If you phone a local dealer they will amost certainly carry it. Its been the same basic type for the past 10 or so years. 30-40 is normal cost.
