I'm an "improver" when it comes to crochet and sewing patterns. Couldn't figure out how to create a pattern, but I am good at tweaking to make an item look nicer (to me) or fit better.
I'm an archer and I fletch my own arrows. I consider this to be a craft as I spend a great deal of time working on materials and colour scheme, as well as taking pride in a nicely-finished product.
It's important to me that the arrow shafts are carefully cleaned of all remnants of old fletchings but without damaging the shaft surface (some of my arrows are laminated with carbon fibre).. I ensure that the new feathers or plastic vanes are perfectly aligned, colour-co-ordinate with the shafts, wrapping and nocks, and that the colour scheme is harmonious but different enough so I can identify my shafts in a target or field setting. I also take pains to remove any excess glue or fletching tape so that my arrows look neat and if I'm using holographic or reflective materials, this ensures maximum sparkle
I haven't been shooting for long, but it wasn't hard to learn how to fletch and I invested in quality tools and materials. I bought a cast metal jig that bolts to my craft table instead of a cheaper plastic one, and put the arrow components on individually instead of using an "all in one" load and push device. My way is slower but works well for me.
Thankfully I've only run into a couple of people who have asked me to make arrows for them. You see, it's cheaper to order the components and make them up yourself. Archery shops will charge a minimum fee of $10 per shaft for completed arrows on top of the price of parts and you are limited with respect to fletching options and must order at least 1 dozen. One person even expected me to order the components for him! I would have no idea what to order as you need to know certain information about the person's equipment and body measurements to order the right parts.
My arrows range from about $15 to $50 a shaft for components only. It takes around 15 minutes to complete one new arrow from scratch or to recondition and re-fletch an old shaft. That's actual hands-on time only. I'm planning to start dying and cutting my own feathers soon which will add even more time.
Thankfully it only seems to be newer archers who ask for favours. No I will not make you a dozen arrows for next Saturday. It takes a week for the supplies to arrive and I have other things planned for next Friday night! Plus it took me ages to source the components for my unusual colour scheme. I'll give you pointers but you need to do your own homework.
I think it's a bit cheeky to ask a fellow newbie for professional services. Yes I picked it up quickly but that's probably because making arrows uses some of the same abilities that I earned over years of doing other crafts. It's about the same level of difficulty as putting on false eye lashes, doing a french manicure or beading with seed beads. Crafty people don't have a craft "gene". It can take months or years of practice and investment in good tools/materials to turn out good quality pieces therefore we don't "owe" the fruits of our labour to anyone who asks!
