I haven't really had this problem, but maybe you can use the crevice attachment and vacuum the dust off.

If you use the vacuum cleaner, don't touch the embroidery with the vacuum cleaner, just hold it close to the surface and gently lift the dust off.

If you really don't want dust on it, then it's probably best to have it framed or keep it in a glass cabinet or similar.

I'm new to cross stitch but purchased a magazine about it to give me some tips. In it, a lady had written in to say she uses a shower cap! She places it over the hoop to protect her projects.

Hope that helps!
