Among the exhibits, there is the technique of cross-stitching, satin stitching, and beads. Subjects are various, but mostly religious. One of the prisoners Volodymyr admitted that since childhood he had liked to watch his mother's hands deftly handling needle and thread and making beautiful patterns on canvas.

"Observation and simple technique of ordinary cross-stitching became the first basics of my hobby," - the prisoner said. At the beginning, he did ordinary embroidery. He liked then red and black motifs. Over time, Volodymyr developed his own technique of embroidery, which no one has taught him.
