Usability

Most people are not very familiar with Laura Ashley CX155LA. It is a quality machine with great features, but most are unaware of this model. It does a very good job with thick layers of denim. The variety of stitches available on this machine is awesome. All the alphanumeric stitches look wonderful after stitching.

The extra wide table is extremely useful for large projects. Decorative stitches are very handy during quilting. The speed control feature on Laura Ashley CX155LA lets you control the speed and you can set it in auto-pilot mode without any worries.

Limitations

The only limitation to point out is that the work light could have been brighter.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Perfect stitches
  • Variety of accessories
  • Works well with thick layers of fabric
  • Back lit LCD display

Cons

  • LED work light is slightly dim

Overall, you can call Laura Ashley CX155LA a better version of CS6000i which also is a very good sewing machine. Unlike CS6000i, this sewing machine has a lot of features that an advanced sewer will love such as larger table, more stitches, back-lit display, easy free motion sewing etc.
