    I'm not familiar with them - were they one of the small, high-quality mills? If so, hopefully one of their competitors will pick up their experienced workers and machinery. The English weavers have been experiencing so much pressure, I suppose, between low-cost, low-quality Asian weavers, and the relentless onslaught of the Italian industry. It is sad to see it happen.........
