Cheap Good Feasts  by Alizaundre de Brebeuf 

Use "scraps" and "waste" from typical feast food prep to make more food.

Women's Heads Through History  by Alizaundre de Brebeuf 

A tour of common and uncommon head coverings, with samples (doll sized but accurate) for people to play with and some cutting diagrams. I will concentrate on lower class versions of these items, the kind very nearly everyone still breathing wore. I might be able to make some CDs of pictures of hats/hoods/veils/caps/wimples/etc., but those would be more expensive than the $1.00 handout
