T-pins are very useful in textiles as they don't make big holes in your fabric work. For knitters, dyers, and anyone who works with wool, t-pins are great for any blocking work that needs to be done. You can stretch the fabric very far and pin away from the work into a padded table to keep the piece nice and taught.
They're also very handy for pattern drafting and screenprinting if you have a padded table, because you can pin pieces down very flat.
Weavers can use t-pins to easily fix broken warp threads by tying a new thread to the broken one at the back beam of the loom, rethreading it through the heddles and reed, and wrapping the new thread tightly around the t-pin while pinning it into the tensioned weaving.
