    take a needle and tread and sow it own with 2 stitches or place the base on a rock and cover with a mess to keep in place and in a few days it will attach

    needle and thread, through the base or foot portion, around the rock and do it again.

    After a couple of days the tread breaks up and dissolves. By then the pincushion should be attached.

    Have a look in the Fragging section, there's a couple of threads there with photo's of various ways of how to attach pin cushions.

    Does it need a freshly cut surface or will it just attach even if the area on the pincushion to be attached is hard/old?

    old/hard is fine, just takes longer
