West Hawaii Community Club in making Lei out of Ti

December 4, 2011

The WH-CC met on a beautiful Kona morning at the lovely home of Kathy Staton to learn to make ti-leaf lei from Merna Izawa, a native Hawaiian lei maker from South Kona, who was assisted by her husband, Takeo “Uki” Izawa.  She patiently taught Patti Kimball, Virginia Halliday, Eunice Saito, Margaret Fuchino, Kikuyo Karimoto, Kathy Staton, and Jo Ann Iwane how to make beautiful ti-leaf lei and ti-leaf roses as well.  With Merna’s help, we were all able to create our own lei to give to family and friends.  We enjoyed a delicious salad potluck afterwards
