Welcome to DyeSmithy
The DyeSmithy is all about beautiful and unique hand-designed fabrics and great service to our customers. I have hand-dyed, snow-dyed, discharged (bleached), airbrushed and painted yardage. There are gradation packets and brilliantly dyed flannel receiving blankets. In addition, I offer patterns and kits of hand-dyed fabric for them. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, just ask and I’ll do a custom order to your specifications. All of the fabrics were handmade by Janet Jo. To shop on this site, just click on one of the product categories and peruse the offerings. All purchases are made with a credit card through the secure paypal site.
While I have many items on this site, you can also shop for DyeSmithy products on etsy.com. And if you’re in beautiful Colorado, you’ll find DyeSmithy fabrics at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in downtown Golden. You can enjoy their quilt exhibits when you shop. DyeSmithy will also have a booth at the following shows:
