Springs Industries, Inc.; Creative Products Group, Rock Hill, SC; 
Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration

    By letter dated August 31, 2005, a company official requested 
administrative reconsideration of the Department's negative 
determination for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative 
Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) for workers of the subject facility. 
Workers produce finished fabrics packaged for home sewing craft stores 
and are not separately identifiable by product line. The petition is 
dated June 21, 2005.
    The negative determination was based on the finding of no 
separations, actual or threatened, during the relevant period. The 
denial was issued on August 1, 2005 and published in the Federal 
Register on August 26, 2005 (70 FR 50411).
    The investigation revealed that the subject facility's employment 
levels during January through May 2005 increased from January through 
May 2004 levels, that the subject company's overall sales and 
production levels increased during January through May 2005 from 
January through May 2004 levels, and that the subject company's imports 
of finished fabrics packaged for home sewing craft stores increased 
during January through May 2005 from January through May 2004 levels.
    During the reconsideration investigation, the company official 
provided corrected information to reflect decreased employment and 
production levels during the relevant period and increased import 
levels of finished fabrics packaged for home sewing craft stores during 
the relevant time period.
    The initial investigation also revealed that all criteria for 
alternative trade adjustment assistance have been met. A significant 
number or proportion of the worker group are age fifty years or over 
and workers possess skills that are not easily transferable. 
Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of finished fabrics 
packaged for home sewing craft stores contributed importantly to worker 
separations at the subject firm. In accordance with the provisions of 
the Act, I make the following certification:

     ``All workers of Spring Industries, Inc., Creative 
Products Group, Rock Hill, South Carolina, who became totally or 
partially separated from employment on or after June 21, 2004, 
through two years from the date of this certification, are eligible 
to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade 
Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade 
adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.''

    Signed in Washington, DC this 27th day of September 2005.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
