Just a short drive from Denver, the DyeSmithy studio is easy to find. From the Denver/Golden area, drive south on Highway 285, 8 miles from C470, and turn left on Mariposa Drive. Nestled in a Ponderosa Pine forest, the views are fantastic, a perfect place to unleash your artistic self and let the mountain air fuel your creativity. Let Janet guide you to success in the dye room!

Janet Jo Smith

As the owner of DyeSmithy, I wear a number of hats. Besides the daily business paperwork and emails, there’s all that fabric to dye, paint, discharge and airbrush! I really enjoy teaching as it gives me the opportunity to meet wonderful, fun quilters. Those times have given me many happy memories. I also have a classroom space and dedicated dye room where I can teach at my mountain home. Lunch on the deck, soaking up some sun and taking in the pine-scented air are just part of the experience.

As a lawyer, I am able to share my knowledge of copyright law as it applies to quilters and other visual artists. I love writing articles for the quilting magazines.  Occasionally, I advise clients who have copyright issues.

In between, I get to make a few of my own quilts. And now that I have four grandsons, I have lots of work to do!

Enjoy the DyeSmithy website and contact me if I can be of service. I’m happy to do custom dyeing also.

“I received the fabric 2 days ago. Simply in love with it. Just what I wanted!” Kate
