It sounds like these plants suffered a setback due to re-potting and the dry cold weather, which would have tended to dry the leaves.

Water them and stand the pots in a sheltered place with good light but not direct sunshine except late in the day. They are likely to recover, but do not feed until there are signs of new growth.
