Established in 2013, by Melissa Pattacini, Honey Bee Hive provides a wide range of rug hooking patterns and supplies for rug hookers, featuring its CHARCO and PRIMCO pattern lines, from House of Price, and Jane McGown Flynn, Inc.

Continuing a tradition started by Pearl McGown in 1951, Honey Bee Hive is the sponsor and provider of rug hooking patterns for the McGown Teachers' Workshop Series.

In 1981, Jane McGown Flynn launched Jane McGown Flynn Inc., for the purpose of continuing the McGown Teacher's Workshop Series. Jane and Pearl co-designed almost 700 rug patterns to be used as part of the training curriculum, under the Designs to Dream On pattern line, which was later renamed CHARCO, when it was purchased by Charlotte Price's company, House of Price. 

The patterns in the CHARCO line of primitive and tapestry patterns were designed by Pearl McGown and Jane McGown Flynn to provide rug hooking artists with challenging and exciting patterns from which to master their craft. These designs are used to introduce, practice and support the teaching skills in the McGown Teacher Certification Workshop program.

Our PRIMCO line of patterns is an exclusive collection of rug hooking designs by dozens additional artists.  These patterns have been selected to compliment the CHARCO line, and provide a wide range of patterns for additional hooking experiences.

In 2016, Honey Bee Hive acquired exclusive rights to print Kim Nixon's Under the Rug pattern line of footstool, chair pad and stair riser patterns.

Honey Bee Hive continually adds new patterns from various design artists. Our current pattern library contains more than 2,800 patterns from more than 30 rug hooking pattern designers from around the world.
