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!

    Is there anywhere I can find CRANSTON fabrics for sale? Since the factory closed, who did they sell all their fabric to?? There has to be somewhere to get the fabric they had on hand???
