Sorry, no seeds to offer here (I never collected any this yer), but I can say....Yes, you can winter sow hosta seeds. The plants will be relatively small the first year, and number of leaves will vary based on the growth rate. Unlikely that they will be of blooming size the first year. Hope this helps!
