There have been several discussions on the Large-Format Photography Forum about these recent industry changes and attempts to find new sources for film holders (Toyo, etc.). Here's the URL that will get you started:

You might try calling Calumet.

I've been told by Folks Who Claim to Know that all production of sheet film holders in North America has stopped. Can someone on this list confirm or refute this rumor?
