I haven't used a solidly beaded one, but have some that have a lot of beads and never had a problem.

Has anyone used a beaded pincushion? I mean one that is solidly beaded? I ask because I am smitten by a kit for a beaded pincushion (sewn onto cross stitch fabric).

It doesn't seem logical to me that you could use a beaded pincushion unless you slip the needles in-between the thread holding the beads I should that, over time, this wears out the thread and the beads break off?

I'm also interested in making myself a new needlepoint pincushion, so if using a beaded one is not advised, I do have a "back up plan"

Please advise.
