Textile Plant, Cranston Print Works, Closes in US

Here’s the story about the closing of Cranston Print Works in Webster, Massachusetts: http://www.wbur.org/2009/05/28/factory-shutdown

The company had been in business printing cotton fabric since 1812.  I grew up in Massachusetts, where I sewed clothing and all sorts of things as a child, and I bought Cranston fabric.  In my early quilt making days, I also bought Cranston cottons.   How sad that this business has closed its plants in the US!
