Hold an afternoon "seminar" with cookies and such, at your house or a
friend's. Be sure to advertise the cookies, encourage new folks, etc.
If you think your group isn't ready for sewing and cutting, call it a
"come play with hats" snack session, and have lots of mirrors, bobby
pins, yards of pearls for braiding, etc. A one-page handout with
medieval images of a few types would be nice, but not necessary.
After one or two of those, you can move onto a simple veil workshop or
an easy Elizabethan caul, or a man's cylinder hat...
