This book is about 15 old skills which were existed in past in our country- Iran - and these days they are forgotten. Quilting: This is the art of making Quilt with batting which is placed between two layers of fabrics on top and below it. At last these three layers will be stitched together. These kinds of Quilts were very popular for new brides to take them to their husbands’ house as a part of bride’s Dowry. Glass blowing: Now a days we have factories which make glassware, but in past there were people whose job was making glassware with their own hands and still those products are very demanded. This art returns to 2500-3000 B.C. They used to gather some special stones called Flint and make very soft powder out of it and then mix it with Alkali. When the mixing was done they used to put that mixture in oven in order to melt this it … and after few more processes the glassware would become ready
