Great version you can carry 10 sets ready to go in your pocket which takes up little space due to the thread used comes on a flat card not a chunky reel. Ive used it a lot in walk round. I also have one set in my wallet.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

Jim Cellini. "The Gypsy Thread (Street Style)" from his wonderful "Magic That Can Be Performed Anywhere" DVD.
Magic is a vanishing Art.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

I think Gary Ouellet's DVD is absolutely superb. After watching and studying that, Gypsy Thread has become a regular part of my show. A very "simple" effect, which can be very touching. =)

Piet Forton has a version on his "International magic lecture" video in which he performs it 3 times in a row from the same piece of thread.

Hi!

David Copperfield showed a version in one of his TV-shows about 15 to 18 years ago.

Was longer ago than that. It was from the Great Wall Of China special. That was around 1985 or 1986,

There is an excellent version in Fat Brothers DVD vol 1.
Unfortunately, It is performance only :-/
I wonder if there is a source to learn this version...
