can you post a picture? Might be able to offer better advice if we can see the problem for ourselves.

Is it possible for you to wash it? That usually takes the scorch marks out.

Are the scorch marks directly on the needlework itself?

SOLVED!
I soaked the fabric in white vinegar and scrubbed the brown bits with a baby toothbrush
then hand washed
its mostly perfect ..I can still find pale splotchs where it was crisped but I figure thats because I know where to look
will post saved piece soon
