Mother's Day is coming up, and it would be a good thing if you started planning now. You really need to make up for that gift of cash last year — so tacky. The Craft Alliance (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.craftalliance.org) wants to help. This arts studio and gallery hosts its Mother's Day '08 Trunk Show from Tuesday, April 29, through Sunday, May 11 (that would be the big day itself). During this special event, you have the opportunity to peruse the gorgeous jewelry of Michael Michaud (pictured) — Mom really likes to be beautifully adorned — and the ceramic art of local artist Yael Shomroni. Plus, on Saturday, May 3, at the Garden Party, you can meet the latter from noon to 3 p.m. and even glaze a couple of teacups for $20! Wouldn't Mom just love having a handmade gift from you? One that doesn't involve macaroni? To sign up to make the best Mother's Day present ever, call the Craft Alliance at 314-725-1177, extension 322.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: April 29. Continues through May 11, 2008
