My name is Judy Martin.
My parents gave me the name Judy, short for Judith.
My husband gave me the name Martin and I am proud to have it.
My name until I was 22 years old was Judy Johnson. There's a Judy Martin who has the same mailing address I do, she lives just down the road. I talked to a Judy Martin who lives in Sudbury on the phone yesterday. But the Judy Martin who makes me wonder about using my name is the Judy Martin who writes books about traditional quilting. It's not her fault. She can't help it that she used to be a featured writer in Quilters Newsletter and creates very popular patterns. That Judy martin has a popular website, click here. I used to call her the real Judy Martin and still apologize when people suddenly realize that I'm not her. I could add an initial, I could add Johnson, I've tried using Judith....but nothing feels quite as right as Judy Martin. It's my name. what can I say?
