My Crosby is falling apart - Crosby Lowdown?

Before I can say anything else, I must explain the rediculous relationship I have with my Crosby Equilibrium (DSL). I bought it when I was 11 for about $500. I would clean it every other ride. I have been riding in it for over a decade. I learned to ride in this saddle, have ridden so many horses in it, jumped so many jumps.... So when I bring it out to clean it a few hours ago, which I have been neglecting to do for some time, I notice that the stitching is coming undone between the sweat flap and the front panels. So now I am trying to find more information about Crosby and any EXTREMELY competent saddle repair shop. I can't imagine this isn't fixable, but remember, this is my baby.

I was told when I was younger that Crosby did great repair work on their saddles should anything happen. Whether this is true or not, apparently doesn't matter, because I am finding that not only did they discontinue Crosby, it's been bought out and I don't know by who. I guess I just didn't pay attention over the years because I was never in the market for a saddle. Because I love my saddle. I can't even find a serial number now, everything has been heavily rubbed.

Anyways, I am done ranting and would GREATLY appreciate any information anyone has about the Crosby company and what the heck happened to them, who owns it, where it is based out of. If you know what happened, you are very knowledgable, because none of my rider friends know and the internet is providing me with zilch of accurate sounding info. Also, if you know of any AMAZING saddle repair shops in the western VA area, that would be great too.

Should be a straightforward repair for a decent saddler, though it's often a bit fiddly to re-use the existing stitch holes unless some of the stuffing is removed from the front of the panel, which means taking the panel down, which is a bit more time-consuming.

Good luck finding someone :)
