THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Folks in Thomasville are putting their crocheting skills to good use. 

Stitches for Sister is the official southwest Georgia chapter of Crochet for Cancer.

The non-profit group met Thursday night at the Fuzzy Goat on Jackson street to knit caps for cancer patients who are going through chemo. 

The caps will be donated to area cancer centers. 

Cadence Kidwell, proprietor of the Fuzzy Goat, said, “Just to have a little bit of handmade love.  We're going to make sure we choose really soft fibers and simple patterns too, so people can feel like they can really contribute.”

The group plans to meet once every month.
