Creative Hands
Bellevue Renaissance is wishing Creative Hands Artisan Studio owners, Sasha Scribner & Michele Moses-Nolan, good luck in their new careers. We're sorry to see them leave Fairfield Avenue. They've delighted our visitors by representing up-and-coming and well established artists and been great advocates of historic Fairfield Avenue.

They will be holding a HUGE sale where prices will be dramatically low on most items with their final closing day planned for Friday, May 11. They shared, "We sincerely thank the city of Bellevue, our fellow business owners who were so nice in welcoming us so warmly, our customers, friends, family, supporters and, of course, all of the wonderful artists we have had the pleasure to meet and get to know.  It truly has been an honor for us."
