JessaLu says, “SbJL is a one-woman craft based business that came into being when, in 2008, I noticed that I couldn’t find many geek-themed project bags for my knitting. I decided (with some prodding from friends) that I wanted to move away from the paralegal and office management work I had been doing for decades and start my own business. Since then, SbJL has grown from offering only box bags to offering four different shapes and many more sizes of project bags, along with in-house fabric designs and monthly exclusive prints.”
