Through The Needle (Thread it) by Owen Magic Supreme(c. 1984) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Thread It was invented c. 1921 by Harold Comden (the originator of The Topit). In the original version there was no spool, and the gimmick was just cupped in the hand. Both Supreme or Abbott’s came out their close-up versions c. 1956, but I’m not sure who was first or precisely when this beautiful Stage and Parlor version came out from Owen’s.
A giant, stainless steel sewing needle is examined by the audience. A ribbon is threaded through slots is a large wooden spool. The needle is lowered into the hole at the top of the spool, never fully leaving sight of the audience. When the needle is lifted out, the ribbon is seen to be threaded through the eye of the needle. Unusual effect and props by Owen.
